Greetings to all my colleagues.
The theme of this issue of CMC Today is External Relations & Marketing. This is an area of importance to us both from the perspective of the Institutes of which we are members, and for us individually as professional management consultants.
Our strategy reflects the importance of outreach as it is one of our three strategic pillars, together with advancing the profession and improving our global network.
Since the last issue, your Board has continued to work on your behalf in these areas, and I encourage you to check out the public minutes. They are easy to find on the CMC-Global website at https://www.cmc-global.org/content/board-reports. Here you can find our previous annual reports to the Annual meeting, together with the listing of the public summary of our minutes. The last page of the minutes is a one-page overview of the financial status of ICMCI. Our goal is to keep you completely informed of our activities.
This month I am very excited to announce that we have officially launched the CMC-Global Directory. It has its own web site where you can learn about the Directory, apply to be registered, and find peers with which to collaborate and build projects. https://cmcdirectory.cmc-global.org/. As the directory grows, it will also become a place where client organizations can come to find CMCs in various specialties. We can also showcase ourselves and our firms with a blog section that showcases the three latest posts. I am proud to be one of the first members – please join me there!
This year we have had three successful Hub meetings in Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas. Each of these provided a great opportunity for sharing best practices, and, in my opinion more importantly, a forum for identifying common issues and how we can collaborate on finding solutions. These deliberations have been exceptionally helpful so we can focus our energy and resources on areas that matter the most to you.
Finally, please check out https://cmcfirms.cmc-global.org/, our official web site for CMC Firms. This program is also now officially launched, and we are excited to have this opportunity for firms with a critical mass of CMCs to have this forum for networking and collaborating. Firms have certain criteria to meet, and then are assessed to ensure that they meet the criteria. Find out more about the process and see the list of current CMC Firms here.
