An Antidote to a Long,
Dreadful, Dreary Year

E

veryone has a story about how COVID-19 has disrupted their lives and their
businesses. I've heard countless times, "If I had known in December 2019
..." If someone had told me last year that 2020 would be the year of no
in-person ILMA meetings, it would have been unimaginable. But here we are.
Despite these setbacks, we are moving onward and upward, developing plans for
a virtual meeting, #EssentialILMA, Oct. 26-27, that will deliver fun, information,
education and even a little entertainment. Hopefully, you've registered by now, but
if not, you have until Oct. 16 to register for free.
It's going to be a new experience for all of us, but it will still offer that key
component that drives everyone to our meetings - networking. It will include
Base Camp Live, with virtual exhibits, where members can get information about
products and services offered by supplier members and others. In addition, a
number of companies will be hosting networking lounges, where you can visit and
interact with members in a private setting.
The meeting will feature a thought-provoking session with Rajendra Sisodia
presenting on Capitalism: The Engine That Moves Humanity. Following Raj's presentation, I will host a conversation with him about the state of capitalism in our
world today and how ILMA members are affected. There will also be some time to
take questions from you.
This event will be about one week before the presidential election. You will
have an insider's perspective on the outcome of the most contentious election
in history. You won't want to miss the session titled Election 2020: Where Are We
Headed?, featuring David Wasserman of Cook Political Report.
On Tuesday, Oct. 27, educational sessions will touch on topics including
artificial intelligence and perspectives on ICE lifespan. One session I'm particularly looking forward to is The Five Disruption-Proof Trends Shaping Our World,
featuring Afshin Molavi, a fellow from Johns Hopkins University SAIS. After
COVID-19, I can't imagine anything that is completely disruption-proof. So, I
look forward to hearing Afshin's point of view.
ILMA members have proved to be game for new challenges. Our virtual annual
meeting is one way to reconnect with your ILMA friends and colleagues after a
long, dreadful, dreary year. I hope you'll join us.
