MPI-CC has a long-standing goal of providing excellent educational opportunities to attendees via our chapter meetings.

EIC_Preferred Provider Logo

MPI-CC is a registered Events Industry Council Preferred Provider. This means that all of our education sessions are submitted to the EIC prior to each meeting and pre-approved for CE credits for the CMP and CMP-HC certifications when applicable. 

As an additional benefit to our members, MPI-CC regularly runs study groups for those sitting for certification exams such as the CMP. 

Designed to guide you to prepare for your CMP Exam, the MPI – Carolinas Chapter Study Group will help you break down the study materials into manageable chunks over a seven-week period with a series of conference calls set for a day/time that works for each study group (generally over the lunch hour). 

The CMP Exam study materials are broken down into Domains covering the subjects that pertain to the exam.  Each week, we’ll review a couple of the specific domains, giving candidates the opportunity to discuss the exam materials with one another as well as ask questions of the study group leaders.  Candidates also have the unique opportunity to gain insight into the format of the CMP exam itself with a variety of practice exam questions and answers. 

Additionally, near the end of the study group, candidates will have a chance to bounce questions off of a special guest, a recent CMP graduate.  We invite someone who has recently passed the CMP exam to share their experience on exam day and any tip and tricks they found helpful during the study process.



The MPI-CC CMP Study Group is offered complimentary to members and $150 for non-members. This group is held as weekly conference calls.

"I found the group support and motivation to be just the push and encouragement I needed to stay focused on a goal that’s been 6 years in the making. My wife has been pushing and encouraging but when you have peer encouragement, that seems to be enough to survive the final mile. I have to say, all the practice exams really prepared me for the test. I completed the test in just over 2hrs 45 min and really took my time. Thank you all for your support and I wish everyone success in the future! Glad to be in the club…"
