Elimination of the IPMS/USA Make and Take Program

As any member who has attended the past few Business Meetings at the National Convention could tell you, the Make and Take program has been an ongoing item of discussion in terms of cost and benefits to the Society. While the intent of MnT has always been to recruit new/young members, no correlation has been established between participation in a MnT and subsequent enrollments. In spite of this, the program was continued because of the local goodwill it was perceived to generate.

IPMS/USA is Looking For a Treasurer

This is an appointed position that serves on the Executive Board with duties that center around collecting and disbursing all monies, keeping detailed accounts of any and all transactions, publishing in the Journal an annual financial report and working with our accountant in the preparation of annual tax returns. Applicants should have a good working knowledge of accepted book keeping practices, literacy in computer accounting programs such as QuickBooks and the ability to be bonded by the society.

MJ Kinney

Mary Jane Kinney, the IPMS/USA Office Manager, passed away on October 14.

MJ was the face of our organization to our members and to those outside our organization. We will miss her sense of humor, willingness to help our members, and her tolerance of the uniqueness of our members.

Our condolences to her family and friends on their loss.

A remembrance page has been created on the forum for those who would like to share a story.
