I-CAR Celebrating 30th Anniversary at July Gathering

I-CAR announced that it will celebrate its 30th anniversary at its industry event, July 28 through Aug. 1, 2009, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.

“We had planned initially to coordinate the 30th anniversary celebration with Board and Membership activities in early February, and to hold that meeting at the Omni in D.C. as well,” said I-CAR President and CEO John Edelen. “However, we believe that this revised schedule is better for the meeting attendees and the many corporate and individual sponsors who make the I-CAR events possible.”

“In these times, when we are all sorting out the impact of the latest developments in the economy on our businesses and on our families, it is unrealistic to expect that customers, sponsors, employees, volunteers, instructors, can support the expense associated with two major events,” Edelen said.

The I-CAR International Board of Directors and I-CAR members will be gathering in February at the I-CAR Training Support Center in Hoffman Estates, Ill., for their annual meeting.
