Mission

The Association for Change Management Professionals (ACMP) Manitoba Chapter is dedicated to advancing the discipline and profession of change management practices that support the success of individual and organizational change for the realization of intended business results.

As a Manitoba Chapter, we are aligning with ACMP Global's vision of leading the way change works.

Vision

Our vision is to create opportunities for Change Management professionals to network and share ideas, promote the profession and change management concepts to organizations in Manitoba and to provide opportunities for education and training.

History

Our chapter journey began several years ago, in 2011 when the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP) was launched. At that time, a small group of Manitobans, who felt that Manitoba could support a professional association chapter for change management, met for more than a year to prepare for chapter formation. In 2013, a leadership group came together to create the ACMP Manitoba Chapter. We are now one of five ACMP chapters in Canada and one of the first 19 chapters worldwide.  ACMP Manitoba became an official organization in January 2015, and affiliated with the global Association of Change Management Professionals in March that same year. 

Our chapter journey began several years before, when a group of organizational development professionals in Manitoba began connecting with each other in person and through LinkedIn.  In 2011, when the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP) was launched, a handful of people from this network began meeting to discuss forming a local chapter of ACMP.  Believing that Manitoba could support a professional association for change management, a leadership group came together in 2013 and worked for more than a year to create the ACMP Manitoba Chapter.   Our association’s founding leadership team was:

  • Leanne Douglas
  • Donna Castellano
  • Tanya Nietrzeba
  • Tauna Craik
  • Cindy Epp
  • Carole Lesage
  • Deb Rhymer
  • Candace Mutimer
  • Diana Huggins
  • Sandra Woloschuk
  • Odessa Rosati
  • Faye Wankling
  • Sue Slater

 

In 2014, this leadership group gathered together over 100 Manitobans who practice or are interested in the field of change management.  This group showed full support for the formation of a local ACMP Chapter, and helped to guide the chapter’s focus – to provide networking and learning opportunities for the change management community and to promote the profession of change management in Manitoba.

In 2015, with the signing of an affiliation agreement with the Association of Change Management Professionals, ACMP Manitoba became the fifth ACMP Chapter in Canada and the twelfth ACMP chapter worldwide.

A special thank you to our Founding Sponsors.  These sponsors supported us in establishing a professional association for change management in Manitoba, setting the foundation and making our first year as a Chapter such a success.
