GEAPS, IAOM Announce Education Collaboration

Chance for members to gain access to extensive education catalog from both associations

The Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) and the International Association of Operative Millers (IAOM) are pleased to announce an education collaboration.

For a limited time, GEAPS members will be able to enroll in IAOM’s courses at their member rates; IAOM members are invited to enroll in GEAPS Distance Education classes at the reduced member rate.

“We are excited to work with IAOM to further our mission of advancing industry knowledge,” says GEAPS Executive Director Steve Records.

“Training season is the perfect time to take advantage of all of the great courses available through GEAPS and IAOM.”

IAOM President Randy Garvert, Ardent Mills, agrees.

“It’s a chance for our members to gain access to the extensive catalog of GEAPS educational offerings, and for GEAPS members to enroll in IAOM’s comprehensive online and resident courses," says Garvert.

"We anticipate that this will pave the way for our organizations to increase our collaboration going forward. For two organizations with missions so closely aligned, it makes sense that we would work together to provide all of our members with access to the best educational programming available.”

This special promotion is slated to run through March 31.
