Join us for our February Luncheon: Why 2016 is the Year to Try Inbound Marketing

original (1)

The way we make purchasing decisions has changed. We still use the Internet heavily to research products and services before buying, but the growth of social media has expanded our universe to find information. It also has enhanced our ability to connect with the customer by allowing them to find us. By placing compelling content online for the customer to find at their own pace, we avoid the annoyance of traditional interruptive marketing. Further, when done well, inbound marketing encourages the customer to give us their contact information so we can form the relationship on their terms — and, build a lead generation report.

Join us for our January 2015 Luncheon: CMP Certification – What it is. Why it matters. How you attain it.

original

Certification is intended to support communicators throughout their careers and demonstrate your knowledge and expertise. The Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC) has identified roles, responsibilities and competencies for four broad career levels: Foundational, Communication Management Professional, Strategic Adviser, and Business Leader. At this time, only the Communication Management Professional (CMP) certification is available.

The Global Standard℠ was developed by IABC through research and consultation with the wider profession and states that “communication professionals around the world embrace a shared career purpose and six core principles as the building blocks of their work.” Those principles are:

  • Ethics
  • Strategy
  • Analysis
  • Context
  • Engagement
  • Consistency

Achieving certification from the GCCC designates that a candidate has professional competence in all these principles.

Join us on Wednesday, January 20 to learn about the certification process and what it takes to obtain the CMP designation. We are honored to have Priya Bates, provide direct insight into CMP exam and requirements.
