Picture this. You’re at a Gourmerican burger joint chomping a cheeseburger, when an outspoken vegan friend starts preaching that you’re killing the planet. Last week, that same vegan downed a pricey glass of pinot before their flight to a far-flung destination, armed with their strongest mossie repellant and first aid kit. Anything amiss?
The new partnership is set to allow members of both organisations to access a much wider range of exclusive benefits, and both AIM and AIPM will offer discounted rates for events and accreditation programs, as well as further access to a variety of market leading training and education programs. This partnership will also see the delivery of a united voice to industry and government on key management and project management topics, which will also benefit members.
“As a discipline, project management continues to grow in importance for Australia’s managers and leaders, so it’s important we provide appropriate pathways for our members to access the professional development opportunities they need to develop as effective managers,” AIM CEO, David Pich, said.
AIPM CEO, Yvonne Butler, claimed the partnership is a landmark moment for the management and project management professions in Australia.
“The timing couldn’t be better," she added. "By working together, we can strengthen Australia’s approach and delivery in the topical innovation and productivity spaces. We look forward to working with another of the peak industry bodies in Australia and working to share knowledge, advocacy and benefits to both sets of members.
