Top Performing Chapter Award




Hosted by the MPI Arizona Sunbelt Chapter 


The Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program was launched in 1985 by the Events Industry Council to enhance the knowledge and performance of meeting professionals, promote the status and credibility of the meeting profession and advance uniform standards of practice. Today, the CMP credential is recognized globally as the badge of excellence in the events industry. The qualifications for certification are based on professional experience, education, and a rigorous exam.

CMP University (CMP U) is the dynamic way 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 virtually on select Saturday mornings preceding the CMP examination. This series of regular infusions of knowledge will better prepare you throughout the months leading up to the exam and help you stay on track with your studying.
