MPI (Meeting Professionals International) and GBTA (Global Business Travel Association) have come together to update the existing CMM (Certificate in Meeting Management) program. This past December they introduced the newly designed CMM program. And some of the feedback received was far from positive. Existing CMMer’s were put off and disappointed; feeling that they should have been part of the re-evaluation and decision making process. And while a portion of the responses definitely included some positive support. Meeting Professionals International made the decision to hold a member conference call on January 22nd to share information, field questions and address fears.
MPI and GBTA Changes to the CMM Program – DISCUSS!
MPI has committed to continued conversations and information collection with present and future CMM members. In addition to the January call several more calls will be held. And if you are interested and want to be included in one of the future calls, send your contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
