I am extremely excited to share the news of today with you and ask you mark a date on your calendar.

IMC USA's national conference (think, Confab) is going to Orlando this year. In addition, our conference will be held in conjunction with ICMCI's Annual Meeting and the celebration of their 25th Anniversary. Here are the highlights:

We will be in Orlando, at a Disney property and a new, large, smoke-free facility, Buena Vista Palace. They have recently done a multimillion dollar extensive upfit. The venue, itself, is excellent (see for yourself at http://www.buenavistapalace.com/video1/). You will be across from Downtown Disney (if you want to bring family, for example; there's free shuttle service to all Disney Parks).

Your 'peep' have negotiated extremely attractive rates for the duration of the conference ($99/night).

Orlando, because it is a destination city, has a broad range of non-stop flights from airports across the country (and, indeed, internationally).

We were just notified that ICMCI (International Council of Management Consulting Institutes, our world-wide 'parent') awarded IMC USA their Annual Meeting, which will be held concurrent, and in some combinations, with our conference. 2012 is the 25th Anniversary of ICMCI and, since IMC USA was a founding member this award is especially an honor.

So, what this means to you, as an IMC member, is an enhanced facility/venue, an easily accessible location and at a very attractive 'all-in' price. A number of the sessions will be held jointly with ICMCI delegates, from around the globe.

More information will be forthcoming, as plans continue to be formalized.

Mark the Following Dates:

Thursday, October 4, 2012 -- Arrival with Late Afternoon Events and Welcome Reception

Friday, October 5, 2012 -- Sessions with a Joint (IMC USA and ICMCI attendees) 25th Anniversary Celebratory Dinner

Saturday, October 6, 2012 -- Sessions and Late Afternoon Closing

Information as relates to hotel and events registrations will follow. Watch for more announcements.

Getting this accomplished is due to the significant effort and many talents and ideas of a number of folks. You'll hear more about them later, but now, plan to join with the other many, professional management consultants from around the world. Learn. Grow. Participate. Exchange. Celebrate.

Stay tuned...

David
