The 2017 IIEMCA Conference Banquet will be held on July 12, 2017 at 7:00pm at the Griswold Building in downtown Columbus, Ohio.   This building is the home of the YWCA Columbus, an organization that provides affordable housing for women in transition.     Having a long history of supporting women in different stages of life, the YWCA “is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.”  We are excited to support the YWCA Columbus and all that they stand for in their newly renovated banquet facility.

In a theme of giving back to the community, we are proud to partner with L.A. Catering for our banquet needs.  Profits from L.A. Catering, a division of Life Care Alliance, are “invested back into the community through Life Care Alliance programs and services that support older adults, medically challenged, and disabled individuals in Central Ohio.”

Keynote speaker, Michael Lynch, will present at the Banquet.
