IAMC:

... an acronym formed from Industrial Asset Management Council an association formed in 2002. It was modeled after the Industrial Development Research Council. IAMC was formed around an interest in corporate real estate, as was the now defunct IDRC. The official magazine or IAMC is Site Selection. It was also the official publication of IDRC. At the time of the formation of IAMC, an article in the magazine quoted an observation apparently based on effective networking IDRC experiences of the 1960s and 70s.

Business meetings should be far smaller and more intimate than the large, often unwieldy conferences that now typify many industry associations (source)

IDRC:

... International Development Research Council, an association that existed throughout most of the last half of the 20th century. It started out as the Industrial Development Research Council at a time when its active membership, referring to themselves as corporate real estate executives, sought to have a business networking organization that facilitated building and maintaining working relationships with resource and service providers. At one time the following quote was prominently displayed on an IDRC webpage:

Perhaps the most important networking is that which is done on a person-to-person basis between individuals with special skills and experience ...

The original IDRC especially wanted location data suppliers as associate members. Much of what was published about IDRC referred to interest in industrial development at first and, later in the 1970s, economic development. Either way, the overall focus was on enterprise and economic development, especially in regards to the site selection process. The official publication of IDRC was Site Selection Magazine (published by Conway Data).

NACORE International:

... The association was incorporated in 1974 as the National Association of Corporate Real Estate Executives after reorganizing and renaming the National Association of Location Analysts (NALAN). The latter was organized in 1969. The focus was on bringing business leaders together so that they could network about real estate information.

NACORE became a part of CoreNet Global in 2002. The Property Resources Corporation website has information about Joe Bagby, the founder of NACORE. Global. Real Estate Agent.com has information about NACORE's background, apparently from the 1990s.

IDRC and NACORE International ...

predecessor associations to CoreNet Global — CoreNet stands for COrporate Real Estate Network. Until the last 10 to 15 years of their existence, before they were combined to form CoreNet Global, IDRC and NACORE were recognized for their effectiveness in putting together meetings for business networking. Meetings of relatively small groups having a serious focus on building and maintaining working relationships proved to be most effective; however, IDRC especially became an organization that held big meetings similar to conventions.

The members of IDRC and NACORE were people involved in property assets management and site location work for enterprises whose main lines of business were something other than buying and selling real estate. Both organizations, especially, sought to have resource and service providers join in so that active members could get to know them.

Of the two organizations that emerged from the IDRC / NACORE shutdowns, CoreNet Global being one of them, the Industrial Asset Management Council appeared to have had more to say about the shift from networking to conventioneering (more).

IDRC's existence overlapped the creation of The Network in the 1990s and lasted another six years. During that time it published IDRC associate member profiles (example) online along with a free-access contact directory, thus creating one of the early models for using the Internet as a platform for building and maintaining working relationships, i.e., networking.

The Network was organized for the same purposes, not as an association, rather as an online information service providing resources to support enterprise and economic development.

When Google was introduced in the late 1990s, The Network was ready to zero in on the opportunity to provide access to contact directories. A mission statement reveals why.

Four years after Google, listings from the last membership directories published by IDRC and NACORE, as well as the American Economic Development Council, were added to the Global Registry of Contacts, creating the opportunity for resource and service providers involved in enterprise and economic development to have continued exposure on the Web.

Creating and maintaining GRC database records has always been provided as a free service to those who qualify as .network user contacts. GRC information published online as well as the many other directories linked through The Network are felly access able to all users.
