The Events Industry Council’s Certified Meeting Professional program, established in 1985, is recognized around the world as a badge of excellence in the events industry.
In April, the EIC announced its inaugural class of CMP Fellows, following the launch of the new program last year. Amy Calvert, EIC’s CEO noted, “We developed the CMP Fellows program to offer unique peer-to-peer experiences and a forum for collaboration for those CMPs that had demonstrated exemplary leadership, a commitment to lifelong learning and to recognise and reward the long-term achievements, as part of our commitment to supporting and showcasing the value of ongoing professional education. The calibre of applications was truly humbling, and it was inspiring and motivating to read about the achievements and dedication of all of those who applied.”
Congratulations to the inaugural fellows from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania!
