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

Goals:

  • 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 Greater Vancouver Chapter was started in 2013 by a group of Vancouver-area change management practitioners. Currently we have over 140 members from a variety of industries including health, education, finance, utilities, retail, and IT. Chapter members range from new, intermediate and advanced. We host educational and networking events that target all member levels, or are specific to an experience level.

Across Canada there are chapters in Alberta, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT – GRACE MCKEOWN (2019 – 2021)

Welcome to the ACMP Greater Vancouver Chapter!

We are a growing chapter and a thriving community. My vision for our Chapter is to create a community of practice where members feel connected to one another and can support each other in their change practice.

Virtual platforms have opened up opportunities for more participation in both hosting and attending our events. We are striving to host 1-2 monthly events on scheduled dates so our members are able to plan ahead and hold time in their calendars. The increase in events have allowed for more time to connect and a deepening of connections. This year we have introduced a mentorship pilot program that will be invaluable to our new practitioners and provide an opportunity for advanced practitioners to give back. We continue to improve our website, newsletter, and social media presence to keep our members and key partners informed about our Chapter and events.
