Memorial Day and Confab

Posted By David T. Norman FIMC CMC-AF, Monday, May 30, 2011
It's Memorial Day morning and probably like most of us, my wife and I will spend the day with friends, chill-out, work in the yard and I may try to fix an electrical gremlin in my 1981 pickup. As you go through your day, enjoy your time however you have it planned.

From an editorial in today's Charlotte Observer, "But just for a few minutes, ... remember why there is a Memorial Day. Pay homage to the more than 650,000 U.S. service members who've died during combat since the American Revolution. Acknowledge the millions who have defended -- and still do defend -- our freedoms here and abroad. Without their commitment, dedication and sacrifice, celebrating a holiday with joy and confidence wouldn't be possible." It's the least we can do. And, if are a veteran or have a family member/loved one in the service, please feel free to leave a comment below as to what Memorial Day means to you. We would like hearing from you.

SAVE THE DATES:  October 22-24, 2011.  

Planning for CONFAB, IMC’s national conference, is well under way.  A record number of 90 speaker submissions was received and 24 sessions have been selected.  You can keep up to date on what’s happening at Confab by checking out the newly designed website,

Confab continues to be the professional consultants’ community with a mission to share, learn and connect with others of like mind.   Responding to feedback, Confab has found a new home at The Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, a state-of-the-art, four-star property in the heart of the Reno Tahoe Sierras. October is the perfect time to visit Lake Tahoe, one of the great wonders of the world and only a spectacular 45 minute drive from your hotel.  

This year’s Confab committee is one of the most experienced, seeking to make this year’s conference the best experience ever.  Also new this year are special programs and tours for companions.  Registration has already started (I’m one of those already registered) and I encouraged you to do the same. 

Stay tuned,

My best,

Good thoughts. I would add this, as a 27-year Military veteran working in the land of the "Beltway Bandit". I would ask those of us who are involved in contracts with the Federal Government, especially with the Military, to re-dedicate ourselves to providing the highest quality product or service possible, even if it means doing something extra at no charge, or resisting the temptation to tack on another year to the contract. We might even finish the job ahead of schedule and send back some of the funding.

These are other ways in which we can defend our Country, not to mention to show (measurably) our professionalism as management consultants.

Best to all,
