The Certified Meeting Professional ("CMP") Program

The purpose of the CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) program is to increase professionalism within any component or sector of the industry by:

  • Establishing a level of knowledge and performance necessary for certification:
  • Identifying a body of knowledge required;
  • Stimulating the art and science of meeting management;
  • Increasing the value of practitioners to their employers;
  • Recognizing and raising industry standards and practices, and thereby, ethics;
  • Maximizing the value of the products or services the Certified Meeting Professionals provide.

The CMP program standards of proficiency have been established by an organization of peers and thereby, provide a posture of professional conduct, which contributes to superior performance.

CMP Study Course provides:

  • The CMP International Standards are comprised of 10 Domains, 30 Skills, and 106 Sub Skills. 
  • The discipline to gather regularly with others seeking certification.
  • Insights into the dynamics of adult learning & examination processes.
  • A focus on the field of knowledge that is the basis of the EIC's CMP exam.
  • The course is open to MPI members & non-members.
  • The course is also open to those who are not seeking certification at this time, but who wish to take the course as a program of study in meeting management or earn CEU credits towards taking the exam.
  • Study course materials have been created and are intended to stimulate study and discussion on the meeting management functions that form the basis for the exam & as practice for the exam. The EIC does not provide practice questions or study materials for the study courses; study group materials have been created for the course by non-EIC participants, facilitators and other study groups.
  • The course methodology is best described as "Experiential Self Teaching".
