IAMC networking events are unique in the industry. As one recent attendee put it, you may never attend another event where so many people hug. What you will experience: friendship and camaraderie. What you won’t: business cards and sales.
At IAMC we have found that when the relationships come first, the business follows.
Saturday Volunteer Service Project
Shalom Farms | 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
The event will take place at Shalom Farms – An urban farming project that works with the Richmond area’s community partners to get fresh produce to the individuals, families, and programs that need it most. They distribute produce to enhance existing services, deliver to local corner stores, and host weekly farm stands at participating partner sites.
