GEAPS, IAOM to Share Knowledge

Grain Associations to Share Educational Discount Among Members

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 Online Learning classes at the reduced member rate.

Let’s Learn From Each Other

“We are excited to work with IAOM to further our mission of advancing industry knowledge,” said 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.

“We are thrilled about the new avenue of cooperation between IAOM and GEAPS. 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. We anticipate that this will pave the way for our organizations to increase our collaboration going forward,” he said. “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.
