Building a trusted community of professional colleagues around the world
ICMCI Board Update

The Board meeting held early May in Singapore, as part of the excellent Asia Pacific Hub and regional conference organized by IMC Singapore, and the one held in advance of the European Hub in Dublin, on July 6th, both focused on implementation of the strategy discussed and agreed last year in Toronto.
