ACMP In Your Words

Share |


Last month, many of you participated in the 2017 ACMP Experience Survey and shared your thoughts and opinions about how we, as the leading association in the change management industry, are doing. We are working on addressing feedback to continue to improve the way we lead the way change works. We have included testimonials throughout this newsletter for you to see why practitioners value ACMP. If you would like to share your story with us, please do so on our website.

Change Management 2018

“The [annual] conference really opened my eyes to the breadth and depth of the industry, and the various areas/roles that change management resides in. Very friendly and open members and staff as well!"- Joe Foster

The full program for Change Management 2018 is now available with dozens of sessions to meet your professional goals. You can now review the various presentations and premier speakers across seven session tracks, including: Masterclass Sessions*, Professional Practices, Foundations, Enterprise Capabilities and Leadership, Tools of the Trade, Integrated Disciplines and Partnerships and Trends and Innovation.

Each presentation is selected to help continue your journey to “Leading the Way Change Works” within the discipline. Remember to register by December 31 to receive the Advanced Rate!

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas March 25-28!

*Masterclass Sessions are only available to attendees with at least 11 years of professional change management experience.

Certified Change Management Professional™

“After more than 15 years working in Organizational Change Management, I finally have an industry-recognized certification.”- Leo Lin

The Certified Change Management Professional™ (CCMP™) program advances the profession by certifying practitioners who have the appropriate education, training and professional experience. We are close to certifying the First 500 graduates and are proud of those who have taken the step to show the industry the value of this method-neutral change management certification. The current exam window is open until December 31st – to apply, complete your CCMP application and then schedule to take the exam from nearly anywhere in the world at any time at one of these exam centers.

The Qualified Education Provider Program

“My experience with preparing for the CCMP was exceptional. The communication, resources and support were top notch. In addition, the recognition amongst like professionals is greatly appreciated.”- Corinna Snook

To prepare for the exam, download The Standard for Change Management®, study these flash cards and review the ACMP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Also, be sure to check out the Qualified Education Provider™ Registry of courses for the CCMP training requirement. All of the QEP courses are aligned to The Standard and incorporate adult education best practices.  If you have recently taken a course that is not on this list, please let us know so we can work on adding it to the registry.

Change Management 2017

ACMP was honored to host four Conferences in 2017!

From starting in New Orleans to wrapping up in Amsterdam, we went around the world, in effort to provide you opportunities to DISCOVER, DEVELOP and CONNECT with fellow attendees and thought leaders to help expand your expertise and strengthen the overall discipline.
