The Board of IMCA, in keeping with its objective to raise and promote professional standards in the management consultancy and business advisory professions, maintains an Annual Affirmation procedure for all grades* to:
- obtain an annual written undertaking to adhere to the Code of Professional Conduct,
- obtain a statement that they are currently in practice and
- monitor the professional development activities undertaken.
* Other than retired members or Members / Fellows Not in Practice.
Members are also required to maintain a CPD Log (Continuing Professional Development) against IMCA's Competency Framework. A random sample of CPD Logs is audited by IMCA each year with all audited over a three year period in line with ICMCI requirements.
Accredited Consulting Practices make an annual return for the practice affirming that all members are in compliance under a), b) and c) above and individual members within the practice are required to complete individual Affirmation Forms also.
