IR Lunch & Learn is coming to Canada! On Tuesday, October 9, the association will hold its seventh Investment Recovery Lunch & Learn. This time, we’re heading “Up North” to Calgary, Alberta, at the headquarters of member company Suncor Energy. There will be a special focus on oil and gas investment recovery practices, with several speakers from that industry providing their perspective, plus speakers from the City of Calgary. This no-charge luncheon event will last a couple of hours and provide plenty of opportunity for networking with fellow IR professionals.

PLUS ONE New Member Program starts to take off.
A few enterprising members and associate members have received their free PLUS ONE Start-up Kit, in their goal of helping the association grow while offsetting their own conference and travel costs for the Memphis seminars next March. Those sponsoring a new member join the PLUS ONE Club, and earn a $251 certificate to use as “Conference Bucks” for the 2013 Conference fees. Additional new memberships can earn you the complete conference fees waived, a hotel room for three nights and airfare reimbursement up to $500! Check out to learn more and get your free Start-Up Kit. Those already with Start-Up Kits (and probably on their way to reduced conference fees!) include Todd Thompson, CMIR, Colorado Springs Utilities; Chet Harger, Nebraska Public Power District; Ron Leggett, CenterPoint Energy; Art Sferlazzo, R. Baker & Sons; Tom Anderson, Abbott Laboratories; and Mavis Anderson-Busch, CMIR, Devon Energy.
