We know that it’s hard to get out of the office to attend a conference. And sometimes it’s even harder to get approval. To help you out, we’ve created this "justification toolkit" that you can customize and use to help you get that approval.

Dear <Insert Your Boss’ Name Here>,

As you know, keeping up on the latest information management trends is essential to our team’s success. It’s more important than ever that our organization experience a digital transformation – and my attendance at the AIIM Conference (March 26 - 28, 2019 in San Diego, CA) will help us do just that. [You may want to include a specific project you're working on here]

Over 600 information professionals from around the globe will be attending the two and a half day conference. I’ll have direct access to industry experts and the chance to network and share ideas with other information professionals.

This year, there will be brand-new, exclusive pre-conference sessions at AIIM19. These interactive workshops are based on the best practices of AIIM’s 196,000-member community for managing and leveraging our business information assets.

I’ve broken down the approximate cost of my attendance at The AIIM Conference 2019 and Pre-Conference Training course below:

Thank you for your consideration,
