2024 Certificate Maintenance for Certified Master Anaplanners

The 2024 Certified Master Anaplanner Program has begun and there's incredible opportunity for 2024 Certified Master Anaplanners (CMAs) to demonstrate their thought leadership, technical expertise, evangelism, and mentorship capabilities across the entire Anaplan Ecosystem! 

At their core, a Certified Master Anaplanner is someone who elevates others in the Anaplan ecosystem through the many ways they share their expertise. They do this through their mentorship, sharing their community perspective and technical architecture thought leadership, demonstrating innovative solutions, providing product feature insight, ideating and inspiring others in the Anaplan Community to define the future of the platform, leading COE development, developing innovative roadmaps to scale the platform for business decision-making, and championing for Anaplan in the competitive market.

Engagement Zones

The 2024 Contribution Activities list is attached to this post, accessible for CMAs to download (last updated 02/5/2024):

Each contribution activity is mapped to four engagement zones to understand and communicate how Certified Master Anaplanners are driving impact within the Anaplan ecosystem. As mentors, thought leaders, Connected Planning evangelists, and technical experts, Certified Master Anaplanners are critical to elevating the broad Anaplan ecosystem and driving immense value through the many ways they share their expertise!

Each engagement zone is important to the Certified Master Anaplanner Community, the entire Anaplan Ecosystem, and the Anaplan Community! Our goal in highlighting these zones is to give each of you, as Certified Master Anaplanners, the opportunity to easily align your experience and personality with activities that are best suited for you to make a significant impact in a particular area of the Anaplan ecosystem. To that end, we ask that you select an engagement zone to focus on for your primary contribution activities or choose the unique blend of engagement zone activities you want to be recognized for. Will you aim to be one of the few Certified Master Anaplanners who complete activities in all four engagement zones during 2024?

We will be taking an agile approach towards contributions in 2024; therefore, we will review this list at least quarterly and share new contribution activities throughout the year as we determine a need.

Certification Maintenance Requirements

Certified Master Anaplanners must meet two key requirements during 2024 to renew their certifications for 2024. Unsurprisingly, the 2024 requirements are reflective of similar requirements in place during 2023.

Complete Contribution Activities for 400 points (due December 15th, 2024)

There will be a mid-year check-in requirement for Certified Master Anaplanners to complete half (200 points) of the annual points requirement by June 30th, 2022, or ensure they have activities totaling 200 points lined up and confirmed by that date.

Remain/Renew Certification as a Certified Solutions Architect (due in alignment with Anaplan Academy deadline once released)

Also included again this year is the mid-year check-in requirement. The goal for this requirement is to create greater visibility into where and how Certified Master Anaplanners are contributing, as well as to assist Certified Master Anaplanners in proactively planning how they will attain contributions throughout the year.

If you are a Certified Master Anaplanner who has any questions about the requirements for annual certification maintenance, your status, or how to engage, please email [email protected]

  • Looking forward to seeing all the MA content during the year. A question why are the points for presenting at a Connect not the same as a Community one? Or should there be two Connect categories like there is for Community?

  • Thanks Stacey! Looking forward to it and super excited to see what Academy rolls out for Certified Solution Architect maintenance. I find solution architecture to be critical to the success of a CMA!
