For more than 20 years, PAICR has served as the only professional organization dedicated to helping marketing and communications professionals in the investment management industry Learn, Connect and Succeed. Over the last decade, however, our industry has faced its share of challenges—and PAICR has not been immune. Tightening corporate budgets have led to stagnant membership levels, declining conference attendance, and difficulties finding sufficient sponsors, all making it challenging to cover the association’s expenses. We’ve also found it very hard to build a steady pipeline of volunteers (our lifeblood) with the time to devote to helping us develop and promote our programming.
As a result, it is with much sadness that we must announce that with effect from February 28, 2019, PAICR is being dissolved. While we believe there is still great value in what we offer, it is unfortunately no longer financially feasible for us to continue operations.
