PAICR is Saying Farewell

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.

We want to let you know that the Third Party Marketers Association (3PM) is offering a discounted individual membership fee to current PAICR members.
The 3PM Association began in 1998 with seven member firms, and today brings together a global constituency of more than 60 member organizations. Over time, the Association has played an active and pivotal role in industry advocacy and education on topics ranging from regulations, firm development, and contracting, through marketing and sales best practices. Our membership roster includes established and new 3PM firms, investment management firms, service providers and other industry associates who support our endeavors. (https://www.3pm.org/).
The normal individual membership fee for 3PM is $595 (going to $695 as of January 1st), but current PAICR members can join for $395 from now through February 15, 2019. If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, 3PM has created a special portal for PAICR members at https://www.3pm.org/loginsign-up.
