SPIN was created by a senior-level planner to facilitate networking amongst the industry's most highly experienced planners across the country and around the world.  To date, the group has nearly 2,500 members, all pre-qualified senior-level planners with at least 10 years of full-time planning experience (the average is 20 years).  The group holds networking and education events in 12 cities across North America, and also facilitates networking through its private, planner-only forum at www.spinplanners.com.
