Loyalty and Commitment

Posted By David T. Norman FIMC CMC-AF, Monday, September 26, 2011

Loyalty and Commitment

"Actions speak louder than words” is a popular catchphrase for significant gestures of appreciation and very simply, we appreciate you being a member of IMC USA.

Recognizing that our members are our most valuable "clients,” I acknowledge that this tough economy forces all of us to carefully scrutinize all expenditures, even to organizations like ours, and I want to make you an offer as a loyal member of IMC USA.

If you renew your IMC USA membership by September 30, you will receive a 10 percent discount (just enter code LOYALTYDISCSEP on our websites online registration page). It’s our way of saying thanks and also because we really want you to continue as an involved member of your professional organization.

Now, more than ever, leveraging the power of IMC USA might be one of the most important moves you make this year.

Consider some of these benefits you can't get elsewhere:

  1. Being member of a community of like-minded, professional management consultants and the ensuing networking and growth opportunities;
  2. The affiliate programs (from AON for professional liability insurance [more later] to the new, yet unannounced, Evalusys [more later]) which offer to those who take advantage additional tools and savings;
  3. The national conference for professional management consultants, Confab;
  4. Courses and workshops (through The Academy and some chapters) to help you gain knowledge and competencies, especially as you chose to move to the Certified Management Consultant® accreditation; and
  5. The pride of subscribing to a profession-wide Code of Ethics, that governs your work as a consultant to management.

So take the time to renew today and update your member profile on our website. If you aren’t able to renew by September 30, you can still earn a 5 percent discount if you renew by October 31 (just use code LOYALTYDISCOCT).

Stay tuned,

My best,

More selling, David. You start out genuine but then you go into that old selling mode. Why don't you demonstrate how IMC is of value? A client testimonial. A video? An audio clip? A story? I expect more from the most august body of consultants in the U.S.: we can be better than this.

I'll bite. I have been an IMC member since 1994. As of March 2010, I booked a cumulative $1 million worth of business through IMC member referrals, plus gave out just over half that amount in referrals to other IMC members. It is not the volume of business that is the point here, but that the IMC network provides me (both as recipient and provider) a trusted source of consultants (mostly CMCs) through whom I have been able to provide excellent value to clients. I continue to look first to the CMC network when I have engagements for which I do not have skills, hours or both.
