Thank you for your interest in joining the Association of Change Management Professionals Midwest Chapter (ACMP MW) Board of Directors. Our Mission is to engage, grow, and empower a thriving Midwest community of change professionals, champions, and allies.

We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate the Chapter Values:

  • Passion: a strong desire for thought change
  • Innovation: look for new and improved ways to perform our work through creativity and by challenging the status quo
  • Inclusivity: welcome others to connect and collaborate for personal and professional growth. It’s how we show up, it’s evident in our commitment to each other and our community

  • Follow Through: ACMP MW is a relatively young organization and does not have copious resources at its disposal. The willingness and availability of Board Members to carry out and complete tangible pieces of work is critical, and some of this may be more operational than strategic in nature. We follow through on initiatives agreed by the Board.
  • Positive Attitude: ACMP MW needs Board Members who can set a tone of positivity and ‘can do’ attitude, who are courteous, generous, and warm to our volunteers and staff.

Treasurer: Do you have a passion for the financial side of the equation? Do you seek to understand the ROI and really want to know how you are tracking to budget or forecast? If so, this is the role for you! The Treasurer, a member of the Executive Board, collaborates with the other board members in creating a budget and then provides regular status to how well the Chapter is tracking to that budget. Excel is your friend and some familiarity with Quickbooks is helpful.

Secretary: The Secretary, a member of the Executive Board, is the backbone of the board. This person facilitates monthly meetings both for the Executive Board and the full Board, is responsible for multiple report filings, including the quarterly reports with global, maintaining Chapter records, and generally keeps the Board operating smoothly.

Director of Membership: This role is critical in attracting, retaining, and engaging our membership. You are the link between membership and the Board, organizing the annual survey, analyzing results and providing the insight to craft priorities in the forthcoming year. This portfolio updates membership data in the Chapter membership directory, liaising with Global as needed. If your friends describe you as a ‘connector’ and you have a passion for building a thriving, local change community, this might be the role for you!

Director of Marketing & Communications: The MarCom Director facilitates communication about Chapter happenings through our seasonal newsletter, the Chapter website, emails, and through social media. You’ll actively seek ways to market ACMP MW externally (to those not already on our contact list) to broaden awareness about the Chapter and its community of Change professionals, champions, and allies. If you are the one that likes to be in the know and spread the news, submit your nomination to be the Director of Marketing & Communications.

Director of Events: If you’ve been an event planner in your past, this might be a great fit. This role not only can innovate and create events that haven’t yet been done, and events already on the calendar. Speaking of the Events calendar, this is your baby. Under your guidance, developing a calendar with right balance of professional development, networking, and training events that engage our membership in both familiar and in new ways throughout the year is core to the success of this role.

Director of Chapter Development: Develop and manage strategic relationships with sponsors, membership, corporations, and peer associations across the Chapter geographic area (WI, IL, IN) with the goal of furthering the purpose and outcomes of the Chapter. Build this program to include monetary and non-monetary partnerships, with the goal of Chapter growth and sustainability front of mind. If you believe strongly in the Mission and Vision of the Chapter and have a knack for bringing people, this may be the role you’ve been looking for.
