The ILC Experience

Introducing The ILC Experience. To thank Industry Leadership Council members for their leadership and generous support, and to facilitate networking and idea-sharing among our industry’s most dedicated leaders, IHRSA has created special opportunities above and beyond the convention agenda.

If you are not yet an ILC Member, visit ihrsa.org/industry-leadership-council, download ILC information or contact Meredith Poppler.

Note: While the ILC Experience is complimentary to ILC Members and their staff, participants must have a registration to attend the IHRSA Convention (education).
