I2M is a CAE Approved Provider. Our programs meet the requirements for fulfilling the professional development requirements to earn or maintain the Certified Association Executive credential. Every program that we offer which qualifies for CAE credit will clearly identify the number of CAE credits granted for full participation, and we will maintain records of your participation in accord with CAE policies.

Innovate to Motivate® is for intellectually curious political involvement professionals who embrace sharing of best practices from diverse organizations. We value a rigorous curriculum that includes professional development topics and the latest research on the science of influence (because it’s not an art) professional development, and going “an inch wide and a mile deep” on PAC and grassroots execution strategies.

"I2M and Amy are simply the best. I appreciated the exercises and brainstorming. This is active learning!"–Phil Guidry, American Kennel Club

“The quality of I2M’s speakers and topics is top notch! I manage PAC and grassroots, so it is a natural fit for me to attend a conference that has a combined curriculum that also includes a professional development component.”–Meaghan Killion Joyce, Manager, Political Affairs, International Paper

“Innovate to Motivate is so different from other events many peers in our industry attend.  I2M is not a huge cattle call conference which makes it a great opportunity to engage with others on a more personal level.  Over the years, I have found the topics we discuss are unique to other events.  I really enjoy the variety and diversity of the program and encourage others to consider joining us in Nashville this year.  Giddy up!”–Sharon Sussin, National Political Director, NFIB and Co-Chair, Innovate to Motivate
