As an I.A.O.M. member, or someone with related interests, we hope you plan to attend this year’s conference. The planning committee has arranged for speakers to discuss topics related both to technical milling and to related equipment. In addition, the annual business meeting will be held for the I.A.O.M.

In addition to these technical matters, we invite you to take the opportunity to network with colleagues during such activities as the pre-conference I.A.O.M. Western Canadian District Golf Tournament at the nearby Paradise Canyon Golf and paradise-courseResort (Southern Alberta’s Number One Rated Golf Course), the Opening Evening Reception, and Casino / Evening Banquet. Companions are invited to participate in a special program on Thursday and join with the conference group on Wednesday and Thursday evening events and on Friday for breakfast and an industry tour.
