CICM e-news

22nd January 2015

The new website!
After nearly a year of work the College has now launched the new public website - cicm.org.au. The process began early in 2014 when request for quotes were sent to a number of vendors and from there it has been an exciting journey to what you see today! Our aim from the beginning was to make the website easy to navigate while providing helpful information for a wide variety of users. The site is mobile friendly and can be viewed on smartphones and tablet devices. Following feedback from the Regional Committees, we have also developed a new Courses and Events search engine that will allow the user to search by topic, region, date and provider.

As always, your feedback is extremely important to us and we would like to hear what you have to say about the new site so please get in touch on communications@cicm.org.au
