A Message from the President: IIMP’s Response to COVID-19
The recent emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought an unexpected shift to everyone around the globe. The situation seems to be further declining with time and it may be many weeks or months before things return to normal. The IIMP team has been closely monitoring updates around the Coronavirus outbreak in order to accommodate any necessary changes during this difficult time.
It has always been the organization’s top priority to ensure the safety of our marketing community members all around the world. The IIMP team has been working hard to offer the very best for our community. Consequently, we are offering the following:
- Suspending all in–person CMMP exams;
- Launching a Fast-Track CMMP program to complete in three months instead of six months;
- Offering a flexible payment plan for those who need it due to the impact of COVID-19.
Please stay informed and take the necessary precautions to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. The IIMP team will stay connected with the community and regularly share any developments surrounding the COVID-19 situation.
As always, I highly commend the contributions and efforts of all our teams in keeping the IIMP updated and staying at the forefront. Furthermore, I would like to invite professionals and institutions to become engaged with our mandate as your share the benefit of marketing to your communities.
All the best,
Nisar Butt, Chartered CMMP, MBA, DBA Scholar
