Why Attend the 2018 Conference?
1) Learn to Thrive in a Rapidly Changing Business Climate!
Today’s complex and fast-changing world drives culture, politics, and business to new normals—and abnormals too! We must know how to target, approach, and win opportunities within this New Normal. Our clients are recalibrating to keep up with new business models and new styles of leadership. Our businesses are uniquely qualified to help our clients thrive.
Hear how first-time attendee Eddie Ajaeb made a successful foray into content marketing, inspired by the 2017 AIIP Annual Conference and his first year of membership in AIIP.
Attending the conference is energizing and inspirational. Where else could you spend time with other independent information professionals focused on businesses like yours? These are YOUR people. They are experiencing the same challenges you are—and they have solutions to offer that worked for them. You could not imagine a more welcoming and inclusive network of professionals than AIIP. Really.
For new AIIP members or first-time conference attendees, we offer a special "First-Timer" orientation session—so you never have to come into the conference cold.
We coach newcomers on introducing yourself to other attendees, and we share tips on how to mine the wealth of knowledge they are ready to share.
We dedicate an issue of our quarterly e-journal, AIIP Connections, to review each annual conference and all its sessions. Check out the topics and the buzz from AIIP's 31st Annual Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.
What do your fellow IIPs say about the AIIP Annual Conference?
As a first-time attendee, I learned a great deal more about how to move my business forward. Equally if not more important, I was thrilled to meet many AIIP members and hear your stories. I feel I made a number of new professional friends and am privileged to belong to such a warm community of info pros.

As always, I came away with about 15 pages (really!) of notes—ideas, next steps, people to follow up with. I am always exhausted and exhilarated and really glad I invested the time, energy, and $$$ to attend.—Mary Ellen Bates, Bates Information Services, Inc.
I came home brimming with ideas and concrete examples of how to consult for the future, not just contract for today.
