Commemorating the First 500

We are very close to certifying the First 500 to ever hold the CCMP designation!

To mark this occasion, earlier this year we asked CCMP graduates to design a commemorative pin to be featured at Change Management 2018.

Congratulations to ElenaRae Schultz for the winning design!

CCMP Graduate Spotlight
Our graduates are leading the way change works and want to inspire you to join them! This month’s featured graduate is Ellie Moody, CCMP™, Steele Government Strategies LLC.

Why did you decide to pursue the CCMP?

My membership with ACMP and pursuing the CCMP allows me to support the effort of identifying change management as a highly regarded and valuable profession and discipline.

Having the CCMP designation confirms my experience and functional expertise to potential employers and clients and is a nice complement to my graduate degree in Organization Development and Change.

How did you prepare for the CCMP?

I studied The Standard® and reviewed the flashcards religiously. Having several years of change management experience certainly helped, but it’s important to understand the content and vocabulary outlined in The Standard because that is what you’re tested on. It helps to schedule the exam soon after you start studying so the information is fresh in the mind.

How has earning the CCMP benefited you personally and professionally?

Personally, it has strengthened my confidence as a change professional and my membership relationship with ACMP. It’s exciting to be among the First 500 helping to make CM history. Professionally, it’s helped to open doors for potential projects and has connected me with others in the field I otherwise may not have met.

Are you involved in any other ACMP activities? (Committees, Chapters, etc.)

I am a member of the Washington, DC Chapter and attend local events. I also attend the ACMP Change Management conference and look forward to it each year. It’s an incredible educational and networking event!

If so, how have these activities added value to your experience?

Participating in the local chapter events connects me with change management professionals in my area. The conference has so much to offer, I don’t even know where to start. I leave the conference feeling inspired about our profession and its future.
