Benefits of Membership
Boost Your Profile
Professional memberships are a valuable career-building tool. They indicate that you are knowledgeable and committed to your profession. They also enhance your credibility with service providers.
Keep You Engaged and Invested
Staying active in professional organizations will help you consistently flex your planning muscles. In this rapidly-changing and demanding industry planners cannot afford to become complacent. PCMA will keep you visible and relevant.
Help You Grow
Becoming a member will help you embrace and take advantage of a national network of resources for planners. PCMA provides in-person and online education as well as aggregated news and information to keep you innovative and effective. In addition, PCMA events provide the mandatory CEU’s for attaining professional designations such as Certified Meeting Planner (CMP).
You preach it to your attendees and now you can practice it. It is a proven fact that relationships are stronger when built face-to-face. PCMA provides year-round in- person events to connect with other planners, suppliers and strategic partners. These connections will help you save money and stretch your budget and provide opportunities that are otherwise hard to obtain.
