Annual Forum

Once a year, the Issue Management Council takes a current reading on “the state of the art and science” of our profession. Speakers are carefully selected for their deep insights and candor to spur commentary and peer-review. Consistently rated “the best conference experience ever,” the annual IMC Forum is a high-value event that is unduplicated in the caliber of conversations and relationships that you’ll experience. NOTE: The 2021 Annual Forum has been postponed due to COVID travel restrictions.

Step inside the IMC

“IMC is the only organization in the world of which I am aware, which specializes in issue management as its core business.  It represents a valuable resource to IM practitioners where they can access best practice and participate in collegial events.”

– UK Mobile Operators Association

“IMC’s greatest strength is that it brings practitioners together to share experiences across a wide section of industries.  That’s a tremendously valuable opportunity for anyone in any major role within a multinational organization.”

– Altria

“IMC has proven to be an organization that can consistently offer a unique mixture of high value benefits.  Most refreshing is the deep knowledge and ‘of-the-moment’ insights openly shared by world-class experts and practitioners in think-tank like forums.”

– Stratagent
