‘Tis the time of year to spread holiday cheer!

As we close the books on 2021

Please consider taking part in some charitable fun!

Share what you’ve learned or mastered in IAM

Whether a puzzling challenge, an ‘a ha!’ moment, or a policy gem.

In our IAM Pulse Community

Putting knowledge into practice is the key.

So capture your thoughts, reflections, and musings

If you need ideas, we’ve got great member content for perusing.

Use our simple publishing editor to submit your draft by December 31st

Then pick one of five stellar charities and $100 will be disbursed!

We’ll spotlight each of the five on social media this week

From expanding career pathways to empowering girls in STEM - take a peek.

We’ll also send you some swag, a special First 100 Authors box

Filled with clever, useful goodies (sorry, no Crocs).

We hope you’ll take part in this holiday campaign

Before you fully unwind and pop that champagne!
