IPMA is a Federation of 73 Member Associations (MAs) all around the world. The MAs organize own research and exchange activities to meet the needs of members in their respective context. However, the value of being a member of IPMA has always been to engage with peers in other countries and exchange ideas on how to advance the discipline and learning from each other. IPMA has spread from Europe to Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia, and North and South America. The demand for our products and services and the number of our Member Associations is steadily growing. Through IPMA, project management practitioners from all cultures and all parts of the world can network, share ideas, and move our practice and our stakeholders forward through effective collaboration and cooperation.
