ACMP offers opportunities for ongoing learning and engagement because we want to provide change practitioners with resouces and a solid foundation to draw upon. We also believe that by growing the change management community, we can accomplish more than any one practitioner could do on their own. This month, we are going to fill you in our “why” through our monthly updates about the exciting upcoming opportunities to advance the change management discipline and profession, and grow the community. We also encourage you to share your why with us on our social media channels and by submitting your testimonial on our new website

ACMP Foundational Elements

ACMP was established by change professionals for change professionals. Since our inception, we have been dedicated to advancing the discipline and profession by establishing three foundational elements: The Standard for Change Management® to provide a collection of best practices for practitioners to use as an internationally accepted resource; the Qualified Education Provider™ (QEP™) Program to provide practitioners with confidence when choosing courses; and, the Certified Change Management Professional™ (CCMP™) Program to provide the profession with an internationally recognized certification that demonstrates our practitioners have the experience, training, and knowledge to lead change.


ACMP Conferences

ACMP’s Change Management Conferences provide opportunities to expand professional expertise through learning from—and networking with—global change professionals. For us, it’s about fostering community and learning from each other. Check out the Regional Roundup for the latest information about these upcoming events and be sure to:

  • Brush up on change management’s foundational teachings, explore the latest industry topics and connect with fellow practitioners at one of our three Regional Conferences in Canada, USA, and Europe this fall. Remember, if you are CCMP certified, you can earn professional development units by attending!
  • Submit a white paper with your ideas, concepts, case studies and proven methods. The call for white papers is open through October 16th and the winning paper will be featured at Change Management 2018!
  • Join us in Las Vegas for Change Management 2018!
  • Visit our fresh new conference website for the latest and greatest about ACMP conferences!
