According to data in the newly released Convene Salary Survey 2011, respondents who were Certified Meeting Professionals earned on average 10-per-cent more than those without the designation.
“These results are in keeping with the most recent CMP census conducted by CIC,” stated Karen Kotowski, CAE, CMP, chief executive officer of the Convention Industry Council. “The Convene survey underscores the fact that obtaining the CMP enhances a meeting professional’s earning potential.”
According to the report, 45-per-cent of respondents had earned their CMP. The average salary for those with a CMP was $76,255, compared to $68,605 for those without.
