Change Management 2015 is the preeminent conference for Change Management Professionals. It is the largest gathering of all levels of change practitioners.

Is this the same conference as the ACMP Global Conference?

Yes! Following the 2013 Conference, it was decided that the title did not accurately describe who this conference is for and what this conference is about. While it is the same conference, we will be striving to bring great enhancements to education and networking each and every year!
