COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The International Customer Management Institute (ICMI), the authority on contact center excellence, today announces its partnership with the Midwest Contact Center Association at ICMI Contact Center Connections 2019. Midwest Contact Center Association is launching a local Chicago Chapter and will hold its first chapter meeting at the conference on October 29, providing ICMI attendees the opportunity to network with other local contact center professionals.

ICMI Contact Center Connections 2019 will take place October 28-30, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, IL. To learn more about the event and to register, please visit: icmi.com/Contact-Center-Connections

“At ICMI, we are always looking for new ways to provide our attendees with networking opportunities that allow them to make valuable connections with industry peers,” said Patty Caron, Event Director, ICMI. “Our partnership with the Midwest Contact Center Association at ICMI Contact Center Connections aligns perfectly with this intent and we are pleased to support new ways for attendees to collaborate at the event.”

Midwest Contact Center Association brings together contact center professionals with the common goal of education, collaboration, and networking. By providing an environment that fosters conversation rather than simply presentation, professionals can grow in their knowledge, find others to collaborate with, and drive real change in their own centers. This directly aligns with the purpose of ICMI Contact Center Connections, making this partnership a natural next step to provide attendees with even more opportunity for networking.

The first Midwest Contact Center Association Chicago chapter meeting, taking place on October 29 at ICMI Contact Center Connections, will offer an interactive roundtable discussion with current chapter members. The inaugural meeting provides ICMI attendees with the opportunity to connect and learn from other contact center professionals. Attendees can also learn about membership benefits as well as opportunities to get involved with the association.

“The partnership between ICMI and the Midwest Contact Center Association is a great one because both organizations are committed to helping contact center professionals hone their skills through education, collaboration, and networking,” said Hale Jay, Founder & Board Member, Midwest Contact Center Association. “The Chicago ICMI event should not be missed by anyone in our industry and the MWCCA is excited to launch another successful chapter in Chicago.”
