CPM 2020 Graduation Form

Please complete the form below with your CPM Graduation preferences by Wednesday, November 16

*Denotes fields required to process the form.

Contact Information

After you complete this form, you will receive an automated confirmation email to the address you enter below. Also, if we have any questions regarding what you've entered below, this is the address we will use.

Name & Agency Verification

Please take a look at the linked PDF (alphabetical by last name). Let us know if your name and agency are spelled correctly. (This is information from when you registered for CPM, unless you have given us different information since then.)

How your information is listed on this PDF is how it will be printed on the program, your certificate, and in the press release unless you tell us otherwise. If your agency is listed generically, like Johnson County Government, be sure to indicate if you want it to be more specific (i.e. have your department name too).

Pronunciation Guide

IF your name is often mispronounced or has a unique spelling, please help the person who will read your name on the slideshowow  Here’s an example, Tarik Khatib:

Tarik: Rhymes with Eric
Khatib:  Ka - TEEB
The fields below are mandatory. If you feel like your name needs no explanation, simply put something to that effect (don't assume that your name is generic though, if there's the slightest chance we can butcher it, please give a pronunciation).

CPM Experience

Write a sentence or two (roughly 25-35 words=brief) about your CPM experience that you’d like read out loud as we share your picture and quote during the slideshow of the graduates. 

It could be something inspirational that was said in a class by an instructor, an exercise that you did that proved particularly meaningful, or anything else that you’d like to share with the graduation attendees about what you learned (from each other, guests, books).

Photo Submission

Please upload a photo (either a jpeg or png) you like for the slideshow of the graduates.  This can be a professional headshot, or it could be something more casual.  If you'd like to have a picture of you and your family, that's fine, but make sure we can tell who YOU are since you're the one we're celebrating.  

Files must be less than 35 MB.
Allowed file types: jpg jpeg png pdf.


Help us shine a positive light on government work! It's important to us to show the public that public service professionals receive valuable leadership training, so we use a press release and social media announcing the newest crop of Kansas Certified Public Managers. You may not think that this is a big deal, but it REALLY is. You can help us in this endeavor by completing the following fields.

Press Release: If you give us permission, we will include your name and agency on a press release that will go out through KU News. If you’d prefer not to be included in the press release, you must click "No" below.

Social Media: If you give us permission, we will post on Twitter and on Facebook and tag your organization while congratulating you on your graduation. If you’d prefer not to have an announcement on social media, you must click "No" below. By the way, if you’re not already following us on Twitter, we’re @KUPMC. On Facebook, you'll find us here: https://www.facebook.com/kupmc

Mailing Address

After graduation, we will mail you a copy of your certificate and CPM coin. Please tell us what mailing address we should send that to - be sure to include all address details like apartment number and/or zip code.
