YMRC doesn’t do the planning of your reunion, YOU do. Our objective is to provide training for the where, when and how to plan, schedule and conduct reunions that keeps your members returning year after year!
We do so by providing information, training, contacts and personal networking opportunities. YMRC invites all military reunion planners to prospective destinations for Planners Conferences, marketplace appointments, and FAM’s. FAM is short for FAMiliarization tours. YMRC and the host city provides complimentary tours to showcase their destination as a potential reunion destination for your future reunion.
YMRC is the official innovator of face-to-face pre-scheduled marketplace appointments for the Military Market. YMRC provides the optimal setting to encourage exhibitors and planners to engage during the YMRC events.
YMRC orchestrates with the CVB and host hotels in preparing for the FAM tours to literally convey & motivate the planners to consider their respective destination as a viable location for their next Military Reunion.
YMRC will advertise to attract more Military Veterans to find your organization when you sign up as a member of YMRC.
