Badges & Ribbons

Accumulating points through the activities described above helps you earn ribbons and badges.  This community swag is designed to applaud and showcase your participation in and contributions to ACMP Connect.

Top Contributors

There are 4 levels of contributor achievement:

  • Bronze - 10,000 Engagement points
  • Silver - 20,000 Engagement points
  • Gold - 40,000 Engagement points
  • Platinum - 60,000 Engagement points

Top Contributor achievement levels are based on your lifetime points (they don't reset after any period of time).

But, wait - there's more!

You can earn other fun ribbons and badges through a number of participation avenues with ACMP and ACMP Connect, including:

  • Earning your Certified Change Management ProfessionalTM (CCMPTM) credential
  • Serving on a global ACMP board or committee
  • Being a loyal member of ACMP for one or more years
  • Speaking at a live or virtual event
  • Attending events like CHG MGMT Insight or Global Connect

  • And more!

You can see all the badges you have earned and can earn by visiting My Profile > My Contributions > Achievements.  Earned badges appear in full color, while achievable badges appear slightly transparent.  Hover over each badge to learn how it can be earned! When other community members visit your Achievements page, they'll see only badges that you have earned.

Most Active Members

Members who earn the most Engagement points each week will be featured in the Most Active Members section on the ACMP Connect home page.  Post or answer a few questions, make some connections, and shine up that profile ... and we'll see your smiling face featured here soon!
