I&M Chapter Summit 2015
I&M is excited to invite you to attend the third I&M Chapter Chair Summit on May 11, 2015 at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Pisa, Italy. The Summit will be held in conjunction with the I²MTC 2015.

Chapter Chairs are encouraged to take advantage of the Chapter Summit to network with fellow Chairs and to interact with I&M Administrative Committee (AdCom) members. The Summit activities are focused on two main targets: to let the Chapter Chairs and AdCom members discuss hot topics of common interest like Society support to Chapters, member activities, Chapter best practices, and to collect suggestions and comments to help the Society better support its members.

Chairs from all over the world have already registered for the Summit, please contact Sergio Rapuano, I&M Chapter Liaison, to register.
