AAPCM merger with IACCM

AAPCM has written to all members advising that from 1 July 2017,  AAPCM merged with our very supportive and much larger international partner, the International Association for Contract and Commercial Management (IACCM). 

Many members are already very familiar with the high quality offerings of IACCM through AAPCM’s corporate membership arrangements with IACCM.

As part of our transition arrangements, AAPCM’s corporate membership of IACCM will conclude on 31 October 2017, and AAPCM will cease independent operations in early 2018.  IACCM has agreed to an excellent transfer package for AAPCM members who wish to transfer to IACCM.
