Since 1997, the bylaws of the Illinois Movers’ and Warehousemen’s Association have required all members to participate in "Compliance 101" as a membership eligibility requirement. No companies were "grandfathered in" by virtue of long-time membership. Every moving and storage member had the option of attending a class or completing the "Home Study Course." We're pleased to announce that 100% of the IMAWA "mover category" membership met this bylaws mandate.
All new "mover" applicants for membership (including all transfers of authority, even among family members) are now required to pass the Home Study Course test before their application will be considered.
Many members find our Home Study Course to be an excellent resource for in-house staff training. Download the open book test, complete all pages, and email or fax your answers to IMAWA. Upon successful completion, you'll receive a Certificate of Demonstrated Achievement, suitable for framing.
Our public "resources" link and the members section "reference library" link will have most of the answers. If all else fails, try "Google" - it's amazingly helpful. This is an open book test, so do look up the answers wherever you can find them!
We're as near as your phone, FAX, or e-mail if you have any questions. Pat will also be happy to come to your office to provide a free, in-person Compliance training class for your staff.
IMAWA Membership Directory – Updated 06-27-2019
Although our members are listed in the "Find a Mover" section of our website, from time to time it's helpful to have a comprehensive list. Here, then, is IMAWA's membership directory in PDF format, divided into sections to help you find what you are seeking. Please let us know if any changes are required for your company.
