2017 Spring Conference
Share |


April 27-29, 2017
Meet us in Memphis, Tennessee


IAM’s Tennessee members invite you to Memphis, Home of the Blues and Birthplace of Rock and Roll, for a few days of springtime soul searching. We welcome our colleagues to share and learn from each other in IAM’s uniquely interactive, collegial way.

Like other communities, Memphis has experienced triumph and tragedy. Drawing upon lessons learned from the United States Civil Rights Movement, a series of vexing stakeholder disputes involving a public park, and stories from diplomatic efforts to resolve intractable global conflict, we will extend the dialogue to explore mediation techniques from around the world. The conference banquet will be held at the National Civil Rights Museum, recently honored as a Smithsonian Affiliate Museum.

Our conference will be held at the world-famous Peabody Hotel, a centerpiece of downtown Memphis. The Peabody is a grand setting close to the best in music, dining and culture Memphis has to offer. Beale Street, voted the Most Iconic Street in America, is the “official” Home of the Blues. While there is no guarantee that you will see Elvis while we are in Memphis, you will have the opportunity to visit his home, Graceland, named one of the Most Iconic Attractions in America. There is no excuse for not finding something fun to do while in Memphis. Visit the IAM website as our conference approaches for a list of sights and activities.

We can’t wait to see you in Memphis!
