"The Career Road Map (CRM) Committee is mandated by the International Executive Board to inform the career pillar, one of the three priorities identified by IABC in its strategic plan. The other two pillars established by the IEB are content and business."
With communicators like that, we don't need bureaucrats.
"Just to be clear the Career Road Map does NOT dictate a single path. It gives an overview of the territory and leaves it up to the individual to take a path across all of the stages, to develop their career within one of the stages or to cut across the domain of communications en route for other destinations."
And with clarity like that, we don't need hallucinatory psychosis.
So really it’s not so much a road map as just a map upon which you can draw your own roads. Or just follow a deer path. Or maybe paddle down a river and portage around he tricky bits as necessary. What about tunneling? Can I tunnel under the stages or the domain? Jesus…
I stopped at the word ‘mandated’…
As long as you stay within the pillar while cutting across the domain you’ll be fine. Relax.

And the plea for IABC, as long as I have known it, has been: “Communicator, edit thyself.”
