The CMP Board of Directors has approved a new streamlined CMP application which will take effect Jan. 1, 2010.
The updated application has been modified to ensure relevancy to a broader global meeting professional, while maintaining the high standards of the credential.
In addition, the revised application will focus on work experience and education and has eliminated some of the sections on industry involvement and the complicated points system.
It also gives credit for the experience obtained by candidates who hold a degree in meeting or hospitality management.
Qualifications to apply still require three years of work experience in the industry.
Candidates with a degree in meeting, event, exhibition and hospitality/tourism management can apply after two years of work experience.
Full-time instructors in a meeting/hospitality university programme may also be eligible.
