What is IAMCP?
IAMCP is a professional association dedicated to assisting members to developing and growing their businesses. The association is organized in chapters who drive activities aimed at helping people and companies in the "Microsoft ecosystem” broaden their base of business opportunities within their own communities and around the world through partnering with other IAMCP members.

What is the expected time commitment of members?
Members typically are involved 2-4 hours per month. Most chapters host a meeting each month and you'll have some email correspondence for Partner 2 Partner or local involvement opportunities.

Can I try it out before making a commitment to join IAMCP?If you're unsure, please feel free to come to one of our local chapter meetings as a guest. There, you'll get to meet other members, learn about their current activities and connect with Microsoft. Most events are held at a Microsoft office. If you don't find value, you'll have no pressure to join.
