Organizer

If you’ve expressed interest in pursuing a CMP certification but have not started studying, mark your calendars! MPI THCC’s virtual study group, facilitated by Carol Benavidez, is coming your way soon, and you can take part in it by reserving a spot today!

About the CMP
The Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program was launched in 1985 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 testing process.
According to recent industry studies conducted by PCMA, meeting planners who hold the CMP earn (on average) more than $10,000 annually than their non-certified counterparts. So whether you're a hotelier, supplier or meeting planner, THIS COULD BE YOU!


Current sessions are on Tuesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. CT for nine weeks: 
January 10 | January 17 | January 24 | January 31 | February 7 | February 14 | February 21 | February 28 | March 7

Contact education@mpithcc.org if you have any questions and requests or need additional assistance.
