Collect coins at the Impact & Impressions Seminar, the Management Conference, and your IAFE Zone meeting. The coins collected throughout the year will be entered into a drawing for a great prize at the IAFE Annual Convention in Las Vegas. In addition, tell us how you enrich your community through scholarship! Click here for more information.
