  • Discounts on products and services related to the monthly subject

George Nordhaus, founder of IMMS confides, �In the past we have neglected our neighbours to the North. Although our management and marketing information is applicable to all of our over 1200 members, the programs have not suited members outside of the U.S. We will continue to look in to how we can better serve the Canadian marketplace.”
