IPI Publishes "Wish List"

The IPI "Wish List" has been developed to help our members know what IPI needs in the way of resources to move our mission forward. You can check out the list (it is updated regularly) and sign-up to provide one of the "wishes". You can provide the wish yourself, from your organization, or even hold a fundraiser. With your help IPI can achieve its mission to make construction a culture of partnership.
