CM Marketing, Branding, and Promotion

On behalf of all AICP members, thank you for your participation and your commitment to advancing the planning profession. We have prepared the following resources to help you get the word out about your CM-approved event.

CM Search

We continue to ensure that all AICP members are aware of the potential for earning credits by listing CM-approved events on our electronic CM search. Here, members can search for:

CM Live Event Search         CM On Demand Course Search         CM Provider Search

The event listings include the total approved CM credit, description of the event, speaker name and bio, and a resource link to your organization website (if available).

Online Provider Directory

The CM Provider Directory is dedicated to listing all of your CM activities. Search by organization name to find your profile. Enhance your visibility by uploading your company logo from your dashboard to display on your profile.

CM Graphic Tool Kit

We have created a CM Graphic Tool Kit to assist providers in promoting CM-approved educational activities. All providers are encouraged to market their entered events as CM-approved both prior to and during the event. We recommend use of the CM parent mark to indicate to AICP members that your program offers CM credit in your event brochure, website and other communications.
