    In addition to the great ACMP DC programming, we like to share other events in the DC area that may be of interest to our members. Watch for more of these in the future:


    Workplace Evolutionaries (WE) Hub is  a community within the International Facility Management Association (IFMA). It is a diverse community of global thought leaders, partners, and members from a variety of industries and practices including, architecture and design, facilities management, construction, organization development and change management, among others. WE’s mission is to stimulate, empower and influence innovation and transformation in the workplace.

    Starting in September they will be hosting a series of interactive panels in Richmond, DC, and Baltimore titled Measurement and Metrics: Understanding the Psychology and Utilization of Space. For more information, click here. 

    *Please note, this is not an ACMP Global or ACMP DC event.

    Due to the expected winter storm today (Mar 21), we are cancelling this week's Prosci training class. 

    For those who were registered, the team at Prosci will count your tuition for this class as a credit for a future certification class of your choosing. The chapter is currently planning another class for dates TBA in June, and additional classes in September and December of this year. 

    We will coordinate with Prosci so that you are given first look option to register for those classes before we announce them to our members.  Due to the the logistics of reserving training space with our host/sponsor Booz Allen Hamilton, we are unable to announce specific dates until ten weeks before training is scheduled to occur.

    Should that arrangement not suit you, please let me know and we will work out something to meet your needs.

    Please stay safe and travel only as necessary during the storm.  We apologize for your inconvenience, and hope to see you at another chapter event some time soon.

    On November 16, 2016, North Highland hosted the ACMP DC launch of the new Federal Community of Practice (CoP). The event featured a networking reception and a presentation by Sophonia Simms, Sherry Quinn, and Sandra Scarbrough about their work in launching a new change management office and capabilities at the National Institute of Health (NIH). Like many organizations, the NIH has recognized that change is constant, and since 2000 they have been working toward making effective change management a part of their operations in both their Office of Strategic Planning and Management Operations (OPSMO) and the NIH Business System (NBS). This has included a four-pronged approach focused on streamlining access to CM experts, developing a CM Community of Practice, developing NIH specific CM resources, and utilizing OPSMO CM staff to provide guidance on tools and methods.

    The three speakers led the audience through the steps to coordinate these efforts, create buy-in and enthusiasm across employee levels, and work toward empowering NIH employees to successfully implement change. They also provided a preview of their plans moving forward as they launch a pilot CM bootcamp and cohort in early 2017, training their first group of NIH leaders in how to guide their teams through change.

    This was the first of many planned Federal CoP events, so watch for announcements about more events in 2017. Additionally, ACMP DC is working to establish other Communities of Practice across a range of industries in the DC area, with the goal of connecting change practitioners who want to share best practices and experiences. For more information on the CoPs or to get involved, email acmpdc@gmail.com.


The Association of Change Management Professionals DC Chapter is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization. 5546 14th Road North, Arlington, Virginia 22205
