ISTAT Member Benefit: Complimentary Conference Attendance For Members Between Jobs

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Dear Fellow ISTAT Member,

To provide a service to longstanding members who may be in temporary need, the ISTAT Board of Directors in 2017 approved a new program to provide complimentary admission to certain ISTAT events to longstanding members who are between jobs and meet certain guidelines. As ISTAT Americas approaches, I wanted to take the opportunity to reintroduce this useful program to those who may find it beneficial.

We recognize that few may be in more need of professional networking opportunities than a person who has recently lost his or her job. We also recognize that ISTAT events provide an unrivaled networking opportunity for those between jobs. In addition, we understand that those who have recently lost their job may be facing financial pressures. As a membership organization, we are committed to providing support to our members when they may be in need and, as a result, are pleased to offer this program of complimentary event admission to eligible ISTAT members.

To be eligible for the program, you must, among other things, be an ISTAT member for at least five years and also have a history of regular conference attendance. All decisions will be made at the sole discretion of the ISTAT Executive Board. If you are in need and believe that you may be eligible for this program, please reach out to Julie Wichlin, ISTAT’s Executive Director, at If you know of ISTAT members who may be between jobs and no longer have access to their company email address, I ask that you please share this message with them.

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions regarding any aspect of your organization. Please reach out to me at I look forward to seeing many of you in San Diego for ISTAT Americas.


Douglas Runte
President, ISTAT
