MPI Georgia Chapter CMP Study Group


MPI Georgia Chapter invites you to join the 400+ current CMPs in Georgia, and more than 11,000 meeting professionals in 55 countries around the globe who hold the CMP designation, and take the next steps to earn your certification.

About the CMP

The Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation reflects a veteran meeting or hospitality professional’s capabilities and was designed to advance uniform standards of practice. Requirements for applying to take the CMP Exam have been dramatically streamlined and can be found on the Events Industry Council (EIC)  website along with other important documents. Prior to applying for the CMP Exam, all CMP candidates are encouraged to read the EIC’s informational documents for full details on applying for and preparing to take the CMP Exam. Please take time to review this important information. Helpful links have been included below.
