Top Performing Chapter Award
MPI Foundation Double Play





Founded in 2014, the MPI AZ CMP University (CMP U) is the dynamic way for professional meeting planners to prepare for the CMP Examination.

CMP U covers all domains and topics contained in the CMP International Standards within a university extension format. CMP U will be held on select Saturday mornings preceding the CMP examination periods offered in August 2021 and November 2021. This series of regular infusions of knowledge will better prepare professionals throughout the months leading up to the exam. Also being sensitive to today's economic challenges, the tuition for the entire semester starts at only $150 for MPI members. CLICK HERE for full details.....
