At the mid-year meeting in July, the board meets face to face to review goal achievements, set new objectives and interface with Microsoft executives.

Regions of the IAMCP send representatives to the board, and the role of president rotates annually from region to region. Sergio Baptista, representative from EMEA, was elected president.

Jon Sastre moved to past president, providing continuity and guidance to the newly elected board.
