Committed to our IAMCP Communities
Community and service are integrated into everything our association does. By fostering an interest in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields for students, our communities will continue growing and producing skilled workers who bring new thinking and innovation to our lives. Workforce development initiatives help ensure local businesses have a pipeline of talent and a diverse workforce. We will continue to build upon the legacy of our founders, whose dedication to community service and education has continued to enhance the regions where the IAMCP serves.
A well-educated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce is a significant contributor to maintaining the competitiveness of the U.S. in the global economy.

Recognizing that financial aid alone cannot increase retention and graduation in STEM, the program encourages IAMCP partners to foster and promote the principles of STEM amongst their employees and their children, local businesses and industry to continue to grow and support our IT community.
