The Year of Change

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

My sincere congratulations to the New Governance Commission, and thanks to the many CMPs who have dedicated time in the past to further and promote the CMP designation.

The new CMP Governance Commission has been selected and will be holding our first meeting in a few short weeks. We congratulate all who have been chosen to serve on the Commission and have committed time to work toward the common goal of ensuring that the CMP Program’s policies are developed and maintained in accordance with best practices in professional certifications and designations. The members of the Commission will represent CMPs, as well as the needs of meeting professionals seeking to obtain their CMP designation.

I also would like to extend my thanks to the members of the Nominating Committee who spent numerous hours in reviewing credentials, interviewing candidates and selecting the first Commission. For those who applied and were not chosen this time, we thank you for your interest in serving on the CMP Governance Commission and hope that you will consider applying for this prestigious group again in the future. 

2015 represents the year of change for the CMP governance structure. We have gone through a period of evolution and been given new structural definition and responsibilities. The CMP Board, which was in existence until end of 2014, was a fine group of professionals who worked together, in some cases, for many years. To all of you who served with me on the Board, and to everyone who served before I joined the Board, I would like to extend my sincere thanks for the time you dedicated to furthering our CMP designation. I am personally proud to have served with all of you and privileged to have had the opportunity to learn from you and share your expertise in many areas. 

As we cast our eyes to the future of the CMP program, I am honored to be at the juncture of the former Board and the new Commission. Let’s all dedicate some time to promote the CMP program in our geographic areas, our organizations and among our peers. 

With warm regards,
