Jan. 13, 2012 - PRLog -- Bolman began his tenure with IACC as Executive Director in 1986 and was promoted to Executive Vice President in 1996, just after IACC’s global restructuring which created separate chapters in Europe, Australia and North America.

As IACC’s Chief Staff Executive, he helped build membership from 66 member conference centers in the United States and Canada to 300 facility members in 13 countries along with 125 allied, affinity partner, corporate headquarters and individual members.

A longtime member of the American Society of Association Executives, Bolman has held the organization’s Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential since 1993. He has also served on various committees and on the Board of Directors of the St. Louis Society of Association Executives.

Bolman has served on the Council of Delegates of the Convention Industry Council (CIC) for 25 years and currently serves as a member of the CIC Board of Directors. He has held every officer position of CIC including Chairman of the Board.

Prior to joining IACC, Bolman served as Director of Sales & Marketing with Stouffer Hotels in Dayton (OH); Cleveland (OH); and St. Louis (MO).  Before that, he was Convention Director with the Columbus (OH) Convention & Visitors Bureau.

“As excited as I am about the next phase of my life,” Bolman stated, “I will really miss working with one of the most talented and professional staffs anywhere, as well as hundreds of passionate industry leaders who have built IACC into the respected organization that it is today.”
