SoCal IAMCP Chapter Hitting 10-Year Milestone

One of the most dynamic International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) chapters in the United States will hold a party this fall to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

The SoCal IAMCP chapter will hold a tenth anniversary party in Irvine, Calif., on Oct. 24, a Thursday. Formed 10 years ago this July with Justin Slagle as its original president, the Southern California chapter had strong engagement and support from Microsoft from the beginning.

As a senior partner development manager at Microsoft, Slagle is helping organize the 10-year celebration with a heavy hitting cast of Microsoft speakers. In fact, the SoCal IAMCP is billing the event as a way for members and guests to get some of the benefits of Microsoft Inspire without the $2,000 price tag of the annual worldwide partner conference in Las Vegas.

Guest speakers will include Microsoft Channel Chief Gavriella Schuster; Brent Combest, a U.S. general manager for Microsoft; Beth Cavanaugh, Microsoft's national partner sales director; SoCal IAMCP's current president, Eddie Bader; and some of the chapter's past presidents, a list that includes Slagle, Ro Kolakowski, David Gersten, Dave Seibert and Eric Klauss.

The event will run most of the day with invite-only sessions from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., keynote sessions from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. and a party from 5 p.m.-8 p.m.

Tickets start at $249, and registration fees will go toward buying a car to be raffled off at the party. Details are available at https://iamcpparty.com/.
