IPMS USA National Conventions
The IPMS USA Convention for 2017 is scheduled for Omaha, Nebraska at the same venue from a few years ago. The website is up and running but hotel reservations do not open up until August 20.
At the 2016 convention held in Columbia S.C. last week, there were bids put in for the 2018 and 2019 IPMS USA Conventions. Five very good bids were submitted to the IPMS USA Executive Board at the annual business meeting and a selection was announce at the convention banquet by 2nd Vice President Mike Van Schoonhoven. In 2018 the IPMS USA Convention will be in Phoenix , Arizona from July 31 through August 4 2018. The 2019 IPMS USA Convention will be in Chattanooga, Tennessee from August 7 through August 10.
This is a new change for IPMS USA to award a convention three years out instead of the normal 2 years out format. The concept was well received by the membership at the IPMS business meeting.
