Study Group



The CMP Study Group provides opportunities for applicants to meet others that are on the same journey to achieve their CMP designation.  In this study group format, our sessions will cover in detail all CMP Domains and Skills by having current CMPs themselves teaching, sharing their stories and testing what you've learned. 

Our sessions are designed to prepare participants with the readiness to write their exam in August of 2020. Anyone with a minimum of 36-months of related work experience and 25 hours of continuing education are encouraged to consider their CMP journey with us this year. If you are still working to secure your hours, our committee can help highlight eligible clock hour opportunities for you to help you to be ready in time. 

The study group fosters life-long professional relationships with like-minded individuals and is an experience you do not want to miss. The MPI Toronto Chapter is proud of its success rate with nearly all previous Study Group participants successfully passing the CMP exam.

What can the CMP do for you in the meeting industry?

  • Recognition
  • Competitive Advantage
  • Peer Acceptance
  • Salary Enhancement
  • Personal Achievement
  • Commitment to the Meeting Industry

"Not only did they cover the study material but, they proved to be experts in completing your application including helpful tips to get in your eligible hours of continuing education credits. I can’t say enough about how dedicated and truly helpful this group has been."
