Roundtable To Discuss IMC SoCal Chapter Membership
and Certification Benefits Prior to May 2 Dinner

A roundtable discussion of the benefits of IMC SoCal Chapter membership and attainment of the Certified Management Consultant designation will be held as part of our special meeting at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2 at the Matisse Restaurant in the Ayres Hotel. A networking session will begin at 4:30 p.m.

Following the Pepperdine study discussion, we’ll enjoy a fine dinner by the Matisse Restaurant at 6:30 p.m., and a special presentation by Mike Abercrombie on the Entrepreneurial Operating System at 7 p.m.

The discussion will pick up on the findings of a group Pepperdine University Ed.D. candidates who prepared a report on the perceived value of IMC USA Chapter affiliation and achievement of the Certified Management Consultant designation for members of the professional organization. Several possible action items were outlined by group and warrant discussion of potential follow up actions by IMC members.

The Pepperdine team presented information examining the consulting industry, identifying best practices, and evaluating the value of certification. The Consulting Team also looked at recent IMC USA member survey results regarding insights on the IMC brand and its perceived value. Results of these surveys provide valuable data for IMC SoCal to consider.

One of the initial findings of the group is that IMC is not as widely known in the business community at large as many members would like. At the same time, business leaders seem to appreciate the value of an organization that promotes ethical behavior, professional development and networking. The value of the CMC designation tends to vary based on how individual consultants use it in their marketing efforts and what areas of the world they are practicing.

“We hope members and others interested in IMC USA’s SoCal Chapter will join in this discussion to help craft a plan of action for the future,” says Chapter President Tom Robinson.
