CMP Study Group Kickoff Networking Event @ Embassy suites by Hilton Park Central
Oct 2 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Interested in getting your CMP? Please join us at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Park Central for the CMP Study Group Kickoff Networking event! Meet fellow program participants, facilitators and new CMPs; become familiar with the venue location before the first class; learn about additional program benefits and class details; and enjoy a casual networking opportunity with industry professionals.

THE STUDY GROUP: The CMP Study Group is comprised of educational sessions exclusively focused on the study and review of CIC’s International Standards (CMP-IS) as well as the purpose of earning Continuing Education Units (CEU) to become a Certified Meeting Professional.  This program currently meets once a week for (6) weeks and covers the (10) different domains specified in CMP-IS defined by the CMP governing body, the Convention Industry Council (CIC).

Facilitated by local CMP industry experts, each session includes a copy of CIC’s CMP International Standards guide, the CIC CMP Handbook, the presentation (handout) from each session, guidance and review of the CMP application, and general information about the exam process.

CREDITS: The Workshop course counts for 12 continuing education hours (2/clock hours per session) toward the current CMP application requirement.  If you have any questions, please contact Charlene Edwards, CMP for more information – cedemby@gmail.com. Thank you!
