Some 214 people passed the latest Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) examination, the Events Industry Council says.
Members of the May 2019 class, which was announced June 5, hail from Austria, Brazil, Germany, Singapore, Thailand, and across North America.
The credential, recognized throughout the events industry, demonstrates an individual’s comprehensive knowledge of meeting management as well as a commitment to the profession. Events industry strategists who earn their CMP demonstrate their proficiency through a combination of education, experience, and passage of an exam.
Those who have a CMP earned more than $8,600 a year than those without the designation, according to PCMA Convene’s most recent Salary Survey.
More than 11,000 individuals in 51 countries and territories have earned the CMP designation since its inception in 1985.
