Message From Our Chapter President

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and ready for a happier and healthier 2021!
The new year is often a time for reflections and setting goals.  As I think about the year ahead I am reflecting on our Vancouver Chapter Mission and Goals.

Greater Vancouver Chapter Mission:  We are dedicated to advancing the discipline and profession of change management, while supporting our members in developing individual and organizational change capabilities. 

  • Increase knowledge of change management (CM) 
  • Deepen connections and networks with other CM practitioners
  • Promote value proposition of ACMP Greater Vancouver
  • Establish key partnerships with educational and business partners
  • Maintain and improve Chapter operations 

The ACMP Vancouver Chapter Board strives to align our strategy and plans to our mission and goals.  This year we already have several events planned for our members at all practitioner levels.  These events include the monthly Change Conversation with Change Practitioners series hosted by Lisa Kempton, presentations delivered by several of our advanced practitioners based on topics identified by the Change Leaders forum we had previously hosted, and new member welcome sessions.  In addition to these scheduled events, I am excited and very pleased that we are launching our Mentorship Pilot program this month!  Thank you to Steve Doherty for leading the development of this pilot and for volunteering to be a mentor along with some of our other Advanced Practitioners. We are also offering discounted registration costs for a Lean Change Agent program through our partnership with IdeaLeap and hoping to partner with Prosci to provide a special offer for their Change Management certification.
Check out our website if you want to learn more about these events and other chapter updates.

Wishing you all the best for 2021.

Looking behind I am filled with gratitude. Looking forward, I am filled with vision. Looking upwards I am filled with strength. Looking within I discover peace. -- Q'ero Indians

Mentoring Pilot Program

We are excited about the launch of our mentorship pilot program!

As Brenee Brown says: "You can't get to courage without rumbling with vulnerability".  This is a pilot of the mentorship program. We will be learning together and learning often requires a willingness to be both vulnerable and courageous. Thanks to those of you who have already sent in submissions for the program ahead of the January 15 closing date. We will be reviewing all the submissions after that date and matching our mentors and mentees.  

Go to the article on our website for more details and to submit your application.

Upcoming ACMP Global Webinar
Talent + Strategy, Why Isn’t It Working? The Missing Piece – A Change Management Journey

Tuesday, January 12, 2021
Session 1 - 12:00 - 1:00 pm ET
Session 2 - 9:00 - 10:00 pm ET

Achieving sustainable organization transformation requires people to work differently. Organizations don’t change; people change. Leaders often share their frustration, they have invested in a great strategy, hired the right people, and things are not moving forward at the pace they expect. Strategy plus talent is not enough. Leveraging a consistent change approach and process, will help increase the speed of execution and promote strong employee engagement along the way. Change management is the missing piece. Participants will learn how CAS aligned with the Prosci® methodology and adopted the core elements of change management. Participants will see real examples of how the alignment and intersection of change management, people strategy, and engagement provided accelerated organizational outcomes- capability, engagement, and revenue.
