The Advanced Video Shopper Workshop is full for the Chicago Conference on March 23rd. Undercover Essentials is considering doing a secondary Advanced Workshop on the day after the conference March 26th, in the morning. If you have any interest in attending this, let me know ASAP so I can get the room booked. The basic certification will still take place on the 26th and there are still spaces available, although it is filling up.

The IMSC Shopper conference is next month in Chicago! Coast to Coast Scheduling Services would like to sponsor one shopper entry to the conference because we know you will benefit from attending, not to mention everyone loves Chicago! Please respond on their Facebook page with the reason you feel you would benefit from attending. A winner will be announced end of February.

We have learned that many times a wife/husband would like to attend the conferences with their spouses, but the cost prevents them from doing so. From this point forward, we will be offering a discounted price for all couples who reside together.

The cost will be $200.00 for couples who reside together and attend the same conference. Here are the instructions and details:

1.You cannot pay this via our website.
2.Email us at info@imscinfo.com with both names and which conference and we will send you instruction on how to pay.
3.Make sure your identification is correct showing you both live at the same address.
4.You do not need to be legally married to take advantage of this, but you must legally reside in the same household.

Looking to share a room at the CA conference. I am arriving on 6/3 and leaving 6/7. I did make reservations for the hotel. (smoking).
One way to help cut the cost of the conference.

Atlantic City, NJ. 5
Terrible connections to airport!!! Baltimore would be better.

Atlanta, GA. 1
City undetermined, Texas 2 (Highly recommend San Antonio)
Reno, NV. 4
Palm Springs, CA. 3

You really have not gotten a good eastern location onto the list. Baltimore would be great. But Atlantic City costs an arm and a leg to get to from the "nearby" airports.

We are getting several emails from shoppers asking us about the IC status. Are we really at risk of losing this status and if so, what are the implications. Do we need EIN's? Is this the companies trying to protect themselves or is this something we need to be concerned about.

The IMSC knows this is confusing and we know you want the facts. So we have arranged for Russell Hollrah, Executive Director of The Coalition to Preserve Independent Contractor Status from Washington to attend and speak at the California IMSC conference.

This is a matter that needs to be addressed by a professional, someone who knows the facts. This way we can all make an informed decision as to what our next step as a team should be. This is not a time to take advice from people who do not know the laws. Here is a link to his website:
http://www.iccoalition.org/About-Us.asp

It is not just mystery shoppers that need this information. Anyone who works as an IC needs to know the facts. So bring your questions to the California IMSC conference and get answers. You can register for the conference by visiting our website.

I have an EIN, but I look forward to more clarity on this issue.

Can't wait to get to California, just got my condo for Las Vegas and going to make reservations for Reno soon.

YAY!

It's too late for me now but my really closest friend was having me help get her airfare to visit her sister in June; the week of the CA conference in CA. So for the heck of it I looked up how far her sister is from the conference assuming CA is a big state and she would not be close at all. Turns out she is about 30 miles from the conference. It would have been great to fly in together; do our separate things and then have a little fun. This is not the first time we have figured out we are/or want to be in the same areas for meetings or fun at the same time so from now on we are letting each other know when and where we are going for better planning purposes!

All you CA conference goers have a great time!

Liz

We have a female attending the California conference who is interested in sharing a room with another non smoker. Email us at imscinfo@ymail.com if you are interested. Here is a chance to save some money.
