In May 1987, thirty-two management consultants from ten countries met and proposed the formation of an International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI) to improve the certification of management consultants around the world.
In 1989 the Council organizational structure including membership requirements and application process were in place. Membership had grown. The thirty delegates from eleven countries who attended this session ratified the structure and membership criteria, agreed to establish ICMCI and approved the ICMCI Code of Professional Conduct.
The Council also approved CMC® as the universal designation for certified management consultants.
All clients, agencies, educational institutions, ICMCI member associations such as the ICMC Philippines, and all management consultants will benefit from the development of one of the few professional organizations committed to global standards.
