After two years of virtual-only national conferences, the Institute of Management Consultants (IMC USA), the world's premiere management consulting professional association, will hold its first-ever hybrid gathering in Louisville, Kentucky on November 18-20 based on the theme "And We're Off!"

Founded in 1967 in the Boston area, IMC USA has now spread to over 40 countries including multiple chapters in the US and Canada. As the only international association representing management consultants across all industries, IMC USA is also the only  association offering the Certified Management Consultant aka CMC designation which must be earned by IMC members by passing an exam on IMC's Code of Ethics as well as providing testimonials from paying clients attesting to the consultant's professionalism and level of expertise, among other criteria.

"This event will be our 'coming-out party' after two difficult years of Covid lockdown," says Margie Hanson, the conference's volunteer Co-Chair, and President of her own marketing/communications consulting firm Communicating - Today's Way, Inc. "Our members are very excited about being able to come together 'in-person' to socialize, network, form alliances, and learn from each other." She adds that the program's rich agenda will enable both veterans and neophyte consultants to acquire new skills and sharpen old ones including innovative approaches for our post-Covid "hybrid" world.

Invited guest speakers will be inspiring all attendees with their wisdom. The conference opening will feature a keynote by Speaker/Author Mark LeBlanc CSP and his topic "Never Be The Same: How Successful Consultants Grow Their Business."

Additional guest keynotes include Jane Cavalier Lucas, How Your Social Media Brand Can Elevate Your Business;  Craig Duswalt, How to Market Like a Rock Star; Manisha Dhawan, Pave The Way:  How to Navigate These Times as a Consultant. Members will be sharing their expertise in breakout sessions targeting topics that include negotiating, strategizing, creating podcasts, branding, writing a book and more!

"To be able to bring our members back to the way things were traditionally, that is, person-to-person, is like a dream that we struggled toward during the past two lockdown years," adds Ken Lizotte CMC, IMC's Conference Chair in 2020 and 2021. "On behalf of our many members who endured a virtual format both years, I can report we are finally seeing light at the end of the pandemic tunnel!"
