As a founding member of ACMP (Global) with over 20 years helping organizations transform and bring to life what’s next, it is my honor to serve ACMP NorCal and build on its impressive successes while exploring ways we can serve more new and seasoned professionals; students; and our area businesses, nonprofits and government partners.
Simon Foster, Marketing & Communications
Sr. Manager, at Adobe, Inc
My passion is to increase the collaboration and camaraderie of change leaders in Northern California - providing a network of professionals we can call on to support, engage, and impassion voices within our companies.
Emily Howe, Director of events
I help California business leaders make real progress on critical initiatives, "stuck" projects and their long-term visions. And, with ACMP NorCal, I bring together the region’s change management thought leaders and most inspirational movers and shakers!
MEG Johnston, membership director
Sr. Change Lead, Woodside Global Partners at Cisco Systems
As change leaders, it’s exciting to be at the center of innovation where new processes, systems, and cultures are being born. I joined ACMP and ACMP NorCal to learn and share with others who are just as passionate about enabling transformation as I am. The Bay Area is brimming with courageous talent and vision - let’s grow our ACMP NorCal community, challenge what is currently known as change management, and have fun while doing it!

As a NorCal native and a veteran Change Management practitioner, I am excited about the opportunities ahead in building our community based on trust, support, and service. I am motivated to lead fun events that foster learning, sharing, and peer recognition across a variety of mediums and locations to serve our diverse audience. Together, let’s make change a necessity not a luxury.
