What's the difference between the CMP & the CMM?

The Certificate in Meeting Management (CMM) in no way affects the status of the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation. In a totally non-competitive posture, the CMM is structured to complement the CMP designation. Whereas the CMP is more tactical in nature, the CMM focuses on strategic initiatives and executive decision-making. Learn more about the CMM and other MPI Certificate Programs.
