Do you want to get involved in project management and contribute to the further development of project management in your environment? Then support the International Association of Project Managers (IAPM) and become a Network Official of the IAPM! Find out here what tasks are associated with this function, how you can become a Network Official and what the difference is between a Senior Official and an Official.

What are Network Officials' tasks at the IAPM?

As an IAPM Network Official, you represent the IAPM in your region or country. This can be done both online and on site. As a Network Official, you are our contact person in your region. We at IAPM know that project managers are very busy due to their profession. Therefore, we do not dictate to our Network Officials how they should represent the IAPM or how much time they should spend on this function. Each Network Official decides for himself how extensive his commitment is. However, our Network Officials can rely on one thing:
We will support them in all their activities.

There is no limit to the creativity of our Network Officials in their voluntary activities.
You can host events and we will help you plan and promote them. You can be active on social media and share our posts with your network. If you like to write articles on project-related topics and are looking for a platform to publish your contributions, we can provide that as well. Do you already have some good ideas? Then share them with us via our Wishlist and contribute to our guides and white papers!

If you are active in the academic environment, you can become a Network Official of the IAPM Network University and represent the IAPM in your respective academic environment. You can present our certifications to your students or fellow students. Here, too, you can count on our support.

For your efforts, you will receive a commission for each test taken as a result of your activities at IAPM.

How to become IAPM Network Official?

If you want to become a Network Official of the IAPM or the IAPM Network University, you must already be IAPM certified. If you are not yet IAPM certified, you will certainly find the certification that fits your profile here. Are you still unsure which certification is right for you? Then contact us via our certification assistant and let us advise you.
Once you are a holder of an IAPM certification, please fill out the form below carefully. We will process your request and contact you. Once all formalities have been cleared, you are part of the IAPM and will receive an entry on our Network Official page or on the page of our Network University.

Differences of Senior Officials and Officials

You may have noticed that there exist both Officials and Senior Officials in our organisation. The difference between the two functions is as follows:
Senior Officials have the highest certification possible in the respective project management field at IAPM. These are Certified Senior Project Manager (IAPM), Certified Senior Agile Project Manager (IAPM) or Certified International Project Manager (IAPM).
There can only be one Senior Official in each region. Any other Network Official in a region can only become an Official, but not a Senior Official. If there is one Senior Official and several Officials in a region, the Senior Official is the one who coordinates the Officials locally and is responsible for internal communication.

If you want to get actively involved in the IAPM Network University, you can also become an Official or a Senior Official. Again, you can only become a Senior Official if you are already a Certified Senior (Agile) Project Manager (IAPM) or Certified International Project Manager (IAPM). There can only be one Senior Official per department, who has a certain responsibility in the respective faculty.

Our networks

We already have networks on almost every continent and in many different countries. Some Network Officials are responsible for their region alone, others have joined forces with Network Officials from other regions to form a transnational network. Our Network Officials from India have formed the IAPM India Network, our two Senior Officials from Indonesia are responsible for the IAPM Indonesia Network. Another network is the IAPM Nigeria Network, which focuses, among other things, on project management training in Nigeria. IAPM is also represented online on Twitter and LinkedIn - here you have the opportunity to exchange ideas with other project managers or network officials.

The IAPM certification

The certification can be taken via a reputable online examination procedure. The costs are based on the gross domestic product of your country of origin.
