Letter from the Chair
Jim Mitchell, CCM
As the CCM program continues to grow, CMCI is advancing efforts to advocate to various owner groups the need to have a certified CM lead their program or project team. CMCI has already exhibited at the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Joint Engineering Training Conference, CII's National Conference, Southern Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials annual conference (SASHTO), the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (ASHTO) construction subcommittee meeting, the American Public Works Association (APWA) Public Works (PWX) conference, and several others left on the calendar.

These marketing campaigns are strategic in market segments outlined from the responses seen in the CCM Annual Survey you filled out in 2016 and again in 2017. CMCI is using the results to determine other points of interest as well, such as renewing your CCM credentials, and CMCI will be conducting a webinar later this month on the process involved. I certainly hope you take advantage of this webinar as it is CMCI's goal to demystify the renewal process by providing a clear roadmap to recertification.

With nearly 1000 CCM credential holders up for renewal next year, the Recertification Point Provider program will prove worthwhile as CCMs look to maintain their credentials.  Upcoming events such as the University of Hartford Construction Institute's ' Principles of Project Management' and the 2017 CMAA National Conference & Trade Show are easy ways to earn recertification points.

Another portion of the 2016 survey addressed the areas in which CMs practice. These results were taken into consideration for the Job Task Analysis and used to help define the outline of future CCM examinations along with the direction of the CM industry.

To our CCM Champions and all of our volunteers, thank you for your support! You are the reason we continue to see tremendous success and growth in the CM certification program.  
We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 CMAA National Conference in Washington, DC.

Jim Mitchell, CCM
CMCI Board of Governors Chair
Free Webinar Explains the Recertification Process
With the rapid growth of the CCM comes the demand for more opportunities to earn recertification points, along with an easy approach in renewing the credential. CMCI will host a brief webinar which will thoroughly explain the recertification process for all CCMs. This short 20-minute webinar will cover how to register for RecertTrack, how to track recertification points and how to earn them, as well as frequently asked questions. Join us on September 26th at 2:00 pm ET. Register now for the webinar.
CCM Only Session Explains the Benefits of Mental Training
CMAA's 2017 National Conference & Trade Show, October 8-10, is just around the corner and for those CCMs in attendance, we'd like to invite you to a special special CCM only Session with Merissa Afton, Potential Project's Director and Senior Consultant. In this session, she will be sharing examples and case studies on the benefits of incorporating mind training and how to use it as a fundamental tool within the industry. Your attendance will not only allow you network with other CMs, but you will also earn points towards recertification.

CCMs in Demand
Owners and service providers are demanding more from their project teams, making the CCM credential a requirement when hiring program and project leaders. CMCI confirms this benefit through aggregated data provided by our digital badging server, Acclaim. Data shows more than  200 current job openings with a requirement for CCMs. You can access this information anytime through your CCM Digital Badge.
Become A Mentor
With the growing interest in construction management careers, CMCI has seen an increase in CMIT applicants. CMITs are on the right track toward obtaining the experience needed to become leaders within the industry. CCMs are needed to mentor and coach CMITs on specific skill sets required and how they can advance professionally. The Institute hopes to continue to improve the quality of the mentor-mentee relationship and has revised and updated our Mentor Program Guide. If you are interested in playing a pivotal role in the career advancement of a dedicated professional, please let us know. CMCI hopes to aid in and promote the transfer of knowledge from our trusted CCMs to our rising leaders.
