May 2013 CIPS Volunteer of the Month: Mukesh Kashyap, I.S.P., ITCP
CIPS
My involvement with CIPS has provided me incredible opportunities to work with committed, adoring and motivated IM/IT professionals. Engagements with CIPS activities at the National and Provincial level provide me with opportunities to meet, and work with like-minded people and most of all, learn from them. The CIPS professional designation allowed me to further develop and maintain my profession year after year. Also allows me to maintain my designations, and stay up to date with existing and evolving technologies and management competencies. At end, I would like to emphasis that the CIPS designation is a gateway to immigrant IM/IT professionals in Canada.
