Sharing ideas with local peers

Chapter involvement will allow IIMP® members to interact with peers on a personal level and thus enhance their membership experience.
Chapter involvement will allow members and volunteers to contribute in areas such as program and event planning, marketing, web development and member recruitment. With the participation of IIMP® programs, individuals will be able to develop and build upon their leadership skills. The personal development of leadership skills through the involvement of IIMP® programs will allow individuals to apply such skills in their professional careers.
