Our Vision

Philip Sander - President

My vision for the ICPMA is ...

The most important element of the ICPMA are it's members. To progress the ICPMA I would like to focus on the membership itself.

Coming out of the global pandemic as a networking association, we shall offer plenty of opportunities to meet, virtually and face to face if feasible, in our various member hubs, at annual conferences but also informally to learn from each other, support each other and getting to know one another.

The Learning Hub is now established and will offer mentors and mentorees the opportunity to exchange ideas and knowledge as another platform in addition to conferences, member hubs and our social media platforms.

I hope to see you all at the next conference in Munich in 2023!

Senior Vice President

My vision for the ICPMA is ...

  • ICPMA as a privileged way to share knowledge …

Promoting the relationship between people and organisations, all working together for the spread of the best practices of project management and innovation in the construction sector.

  • … throughout the world and for the world…

The world is a better place when we all work together. And ICPMA as a worldwide organization plays an important role with the spread of best practices worldwide. ICPMA is also engaged with the education of young professionals and students, supporting, and supported by, our dedicated young persons association YICPMA.

  • … integrated in a friendly, collaborative, and diverse professional network...

People with the same collaborative way of thinking, people who aim to exchange knowledge and promote the achievement of higher standards for the construction sector worldwide. A diverse organization, covering different cultures, people from various fields within construction, design and operations, with varying responsibilities and experiences – ICPMA as the best network to meet others with interesting experiences and lives!

Christina Stoltz - Immediate Past President (President 2019-22)

My vision for the ICPMA was to be the BEST:

  • B road – Global with a wide range of topics: inclusive and diverse

  • E ffective – Promoting the principles of "the better way" effectively: simplicity is key plus brand recognition

  • S haring ideas and Support – Share ideas and support each other, particularly with the next generation

  • T ime and Team - Have a good time and play as a team

The Steering Committee focussed on the engagement with young professionals / YICPMA and on learning and sharing knowledge between existing members and the next generation of project managers. This was demonstrated by the learning hub and mentoring programme established in 2021 and the YICPMA delivering talks at our 2021 virtual conference. The aim was to create an association which is diverse, inclusive and ‘current’ whilst maintaining our ethos of a friendly network sharing knowledge and experience.
