IAFE Summit only time when the courses are limited to IFM enrollees only - no one else, except Institute Graduates, can attend this meeting.
It is intensive training and networking time. Important note: you MUST plan to attend at least two Summits as certain courses are offered only in this setting! The location changes each year and typically it is scheduled for some time in the first quarter of the year, but it has been held in 3rd quarter upon occasion.
