Updates: Conversation with Change Practitioners
Thank you to Lisa Kempton
In my first year as Chapter President, my dear friend and colleague Lisa Kempton approached me about hosting a monthly series for our Vancouver Chapter members.  The goal of the series was to connect local practitioners in a variety of change topics and build our network and community. 

On October 2, 2020 at 7:45 am our first “Conversations with Change Practitioners” was launched (on zoom)!  Our first topic was “Your Change Practitioner Career Journey”.  The session was open to all levels of experience and we had the opportunity to reflect on our professional journey, explore what helps you grow and develop as a change practitioner, and learn about common paths in change management.  The session was a success and for the months that followed we created a space for conversation and connection.  Members from our chapter were invited to co-host with Lisa and shared their professional experience and expertise.   

19 Conversations later, Lisa has decided to step back from hosting these sessions and on behalf of the ACMP Vancouver Chapter Board and Members,  how do I begin to say thank you?  To begin, thank you for sharing your time, knowledge and masterful facilitation skills.  Your ability to create a warm welcoming environment over zoom is a skill to be admired and modeled.  Thank you for actively supporting our Association – volunteer involvement is the heart of our Chapter.  And personally, thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and vision in helping me create a community of practice and connections for our members. 

We wish you continued success in your change practitioner career journey and hope to continue to see you at our future events.

“See yourself bloom”
Grace McKeown, Past President
