IOCOM Celebrates its 8th Anniversary


By postmaster - Posted on 05 February 2018

It is with great pleasure that we announce the 8th anniversary of the International Organization for Collaborative Outcome Management (IOCOM).

It is thanks to all of you that we are able to celebrate these eight years. As many of you are aware, IOCOM has members around the globe. Since our official launch in 2010, we now have approximately 800 members in over 80 countries! That is quite an achievement for a small organization like ours.

Since being registered in Canada as a not-for-profit Corporation in September 2012, IOCOM now has a very diverse Board of Directors and Country Representatives on almost every continent. Our flagship journal, the IOCOM Digest & Dialogue (IDD), is published on a quarterly basis and features content on a variety of subjects written by experts from around the world. In our collective pursuit for greater collaboration, we invite you to read the articles and send us your comments. We also welcome your ideas on how to improve the IDD.

It is also with great pride that we announce these accomplishments and truly look forward to your active participation. With members on almost every continent, we encourage you to reach out to your Country and regional representatives and fellow IOCOM members whether to seek advice, offer suggestions or just to introduce yourself. I urge you to log-on to your web account, send a message and be connected. We are in the process of renewing the IOCOM web to be more dynamic to your needs.

IOCOM will continue to focus on the four priorities in our Strategic Waves Plan (2018-2021):
a) Strategic Priority #1: Financial Security & Sustainability
b) Strategic Priority #2: IOCOM Leadership in professional connectivity worldwide,
c) Strategic Priority #3: Capacity building based on membership needs
d) Strategic Priority #4: Excellence and innovation in Governance/Management

Plans are to develop a number of revenue streams to sustain the financial viability of IOCOM. Capacity building strategies include hosting regional Outcome Management conferences in Africa, Asia and North America to allow members to participate in these events and to renew the network.

Your continued support of IOCOM is greatly appreciated and we look forward to another great year of collaboration.

Thank you.
Sandiran (Sandi) Premakanthan, IOCOM President/Chair, and the IOCOM Board of Directors
