Change Management Conferences 2013

Conferences are an important professional development opportunity. Most provide best practices as well as innovation tracks (and the networking is terrific). Please note this is not an endorsement―just a list. I will let you know the ones we will attend. Let’s connect if you will be there also.

Many of the conferences for 2013 are being organized and announced now. In some cases, the “call for papers” is still open.

This post is all about change management conferences in the US and Canada.

I have also started tracking Strategy and Strategy Execution conferences. That post will be published shortly.

Drum roll, please. Here is the list for 2013:


  • “Lights, Camera, Change…producing results in a global economy”, April 14-17, 2013, Los Angeles, California. The Association of Change Management Professionals.  I will be moderating a panel entitled “Perks and Perils: Optimizing internal and external change management” and Rod Goelz and Stephen Maye will present on “Eliminating the dirty little secret—we must impact the “70% failure rate””.  Let’s connect there or in advance.




Do you know of a conference that I missed? Please add it in the comments section or email me at and I will update the list.
