Earn your CMP

Certified Meeting Professional
The Events Industry Council (EIC) launched the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program in 1985 to enhance the knowledge and performance of meeting professionals, promote the status and credibility of the meeting profession and advance uniform standards of practice. Today, the CMP credential is recognized globally as the badge of excellence in the meeting, convention, exhibition, and event industry. The qualifications for certification are based on professional experience, education and a rigorous exam.

CMP Prep Course
WSAE has partnered with the Michigan Society of Association Executives (MSAE) to offer an online CMP prep course that incorporate study guides, reading comprehension questions, flashcards and practice tests. Each session is recorded for those who cannot attend the class. The curriculum is consistent with the CMP International Standards (CMP-IS) knowledge base domains, which identify major content areas that compose the exam. Learn more.

You must document both your experience and your education on the application before you are eligible to take the exam. Please refer to the EIC Handbook for guidelines.
