The Ohio Certified Public Manager® Society is dedicated to provide opportunities to enhance leadership skills through education, networking, mentoring, career development, personal growth and recognition to the students and graduates of Ohio’s CPM training program.
The Certified Public Manager® (CPM) designation is a viable professional standing recognized at the federal, state, county, and local government levels. Originating with the national CPM Consortium, the training and organizational model is delivered in a majority of US states. Each state is evaluated by the national CPM Consortium for credential renewal every three years.
The purpose of the Ohio CPM Society, as part of the National CPM Consortium’s organizational model, is to partner with the Department of Administrative Service’s OCPM Training Program in providing a solid foundation of comprehensive management training to professionals working in Ohio’s public sector and continue development of alumni.
