AIM was established in October 1969 because of barriers and impediments placed on minority employees seeking career advancement. Initially the founders met and held a seminar to discuss Equal Employment Opportunities. Since that meeting and formulation of the first chapters, AIM membership has grown significantly. There are over 40 Active professional chapters in major urban areas across the nation. AIM continues to provide an annual seminar to develop the career and educational needs of minorities
