Change Up Your Mardi Gras and Join Us in New Orleans for Change Management 2017! This year will include:
A Celebration of Special Sessions…

Workshops are special sessions that cater to small-group conversation and collaboration.

These hands-on settings can bring BIG benefits to your career. All workshops are led by Qualified Education Providers™, who will discuss the latest tips and trends to help expand your professional tool belt.

Register for a workshop before or after conference to add a unique addition to your Change Management 2017 experience. For more information or to sign up now, visit HERE.

…New MASTERCLASS Sessions…

ACMP has renamed the ACMP Academy sessions to MASTERCLASS Sessions! The Conference Committee wanted a name to reflect the content and intent of these special sessions.

MASTERCLASS is an exclusive opportunity only available to seasoned change management practitioners with at least 11 years of industry experience. From small-group discussions, workshops and panels, each MASTERCLASS is designed to be engaging, informative and collaborative for conference’s more experienced attendees who are looking for something different each year.

Led by premier experts, sessions are aimed to provide insight on the latest industry trends, examine upcoming challenges and offer fresh strategies within the change management discipline.

MASTERCLASS sessions are unique opportunities available for the first time this year.

Due to limited seating and the format of MASTERCLASS, attendees may only register for one session at this time. For additional information, visit: HERE. If you have already registered, you will see the option to add these classes in your activity field in your attendee portal. If you have not registered, you will see it during the registration process. Please note that only those with 11+ years of experience will be able to register.

…and the Opportunity to Show Your SPIRIT as a Sponsor!

From bags, booths and badges – oh my! Show your organization’s spirit on Change Management 2017 conference items and more.

As a sponsor, your company can share its messaging with more than 1,100 attendees from around the world. This targeted audience offers a unique opportunity to directly communication with change management practitioners during the industry’s largest event.

Sponsorship opportunities are vast and customizable, allowing companies – large and small – to take part in “Leading the Way Change Works!”

Take the Leap Today by becoming a Certified Change Management Professional™ (CCMP™)! ACMP offers resources for you to:
Become Certified...

If you have not yet taken the opportunity to formally established yourself as a Certified Change Management Practitioner™ (CCMP), now is your chance! Based on feedback we've received from applicants; we've created resources for you to use as you embark on your CCMP journey. Here are some ways we can help you finish taking this important step in your career:

…Learn How the CCMP™ Expands Credibility…

Our CCMP graduates are leading the way change works and want to inspire you to do the same! We reached out to our CCMP graduates for their CCMP story and we look forward to sharing them with you in upcoming communications.

This month’s featured graduate is Christopher Smith, Founding Principal at ChangeSmith Management Consultants

How has earning the CCMP benefited you personally and professionally?

After nearly 17 years as a professional management consultant for large professional service firms including Booz Allen and PwC, I became frustrated with having to find and develop change management opportunities in the shadows of broader consulting projects. Rather, I wanted change initiatives to be the primary focus not only of my work, but of my development as a professional. So I started my own firm - ChangeSmith Management Consultants. The CCMP has been an important credential not only in developing the rigor with which we approach the tactical elements of our clients' work, but also in expanding upon the credibility with which we are considered for future work. I am very pleased to have made the commitment to pursue the CCMP and honored to have been among the first practitioners to have earned it.

Are you looking to expand your credibility? Learn more about how to apply here.

The QEP program is aligned to the Certified Change Management Professional (CCMP).
