IACCM Council is an appointed non-governing body consisting of two parts: local contacts and community leads. Members of the IACCM Council are listed on the IACCM website, with appropriate contact information. General communication with any individual council member may occur at any time; formal consultations (by conference call or webinar) typically occur twice a year.


Local Contacts


We value the ability to consult with our local contacts, to validate our services and directions and to receive feedback on local trends and needs. Within the country, we ask that IACCM Council members:

  • Act as a local point of contact to assist with handling questions from local members or potential members. Many times people like to make initial queries in their native language.
  • Act as a point of referral for other questions or opportunities (e.g. from local media, from local conference companies, etc.)
  • Assist with or convene periodic local member meetings.
  • Represent the Association at local events or meetings, as appropriate in a speaking / presenting role
  • Promote membership in the Association and have general familiarity with our services


Community Leads


We value the breadth of experts that are members from a wide variety of companies, industries and functions. From the diversity, some commonalities and communities have arisen. These may be industry specific or topical. For examples, there is an Oil and Gas Community, as well as a Professional Development Community. (The current list is visible on www.iaccm.com/iaccm-council)


Our community leads provide input and guidance on the subject matter of their community, trends, directions and needs. We ask that IACCM Council Community Leads:

  • Act as the thought leader, subject matter expert and point of contact to assist with handling questions around the community’s subject matter.
  • Act as a point of referral for other questions or opportunities (e.g. from local media, from local conference companies, etc.)
  • Assist with or convene periodic virtual member meetings.

  • Promote membership in the Association and have general familiarity with our services
