  • 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.

For more than a decade the CMP designation has defined the standard of professionalism in the Meetings industry through the certification requirements based on industry experience and academic examination.
