New ICCP President: Ken Metcalfe, CCP, I.S.P., ITCP

On ICCP's 40th Anniversary, it is fitting to note that CIPS too celebrates 40 years in association with ICCP, a professional achievement in today’s era of fleeting partnerships.  Beyond time, ICCP and CIPS have deep roots through skills assessment, paths to certification and strong ties with CIPS members. These relationships truly run deep as evidenced not only by my presidency but also Léon Wagschal, M.Sc., CSP, CDP, I.S.P., ITCP/IP3P as President ICCP Education Foundation, Ken Bainey, CCP, and Kewal Dhariwal, I.S.P., CCP, ITCP/IP3-IFIP as ICCP Executive Director.  Léon currently serves on the CIPS National board and Kewal is a past president of CIPS National.

CIPS and ICCP share international exposure through many organizations exampled by: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP), Consejo Profesional en Ciencias Informaticas (CPCI), Data Management International (DAMA) , International Federation of Information Processing (IFIP), SOX Institute, The Data Warehousing Institute International (TDWI) and Zackman International.

My goal is to encourage greater societal involvement especially with ICCP’s College and University curriculum assessments in IS, CS, & IT. I will work on adding more members to our Board of Directors to broaden our international appeal. But mostly I want to thank everyone for this opportunity to serve our common objective of raising professionalism in our workplace.
