There’s talk around the water cooler of the importance of meaningful engagement for creating event experiences that wow audiences. But what exactly does that mean? And how does it translate into actionable strategies?
Choosing a city ... site visits aren’t for the unprepared!
The deadlines for those who are recertifying have changed. As always, you must recertify in the fifth year of your certification cycle; however, if you miss the 12/31 deadline, you still can submit your application IF you do so before 3/31 of your sixth year. In years past, CMPs were given a full year after their certification end date to submit your application. That period was changed to three months in 2016. Don’t wait! If your certification cycle is coming to an end, send in your recert application! With the new online system, it’s easy!
It’s time to recertify! You worked hard to earn your CMP! Recertify before August 31 to save $25! Did you know being a member of an industry organization such as MPI, PCMA or ASAE can also count towards your CE credit needed to recertify? Your recertification application can be submitted any time between now and the end of the year. Please note that since your last application, CIC has transitioned to an all online application system and your recertification application must be completed through the online portal. Save Money – Recertify Early! Recertification Fees: May 1 – August 31 $225 USD September 1 – December 31 $250 USD

We are happy to announce a new initiative now under CIC, Green Meeting Industry Council. The Green Meeting Industry Council promotes the perspective that sustainability requires us all to be part of the solution. By working together, we can create sustainability and sustainable development in the framework of our events, and in our communities. Sustainability requires that we source materials that fuel our society, and our events, in ways that are both ecologically and socially responsible. GMIC believes real leadership and a passionate effort to share knowledge is the key to this initiative. Become a supporter now to learn more about sustainability through complimentary webinars and attend the Sustainable Meetings Conference prior to CMP Conclave, September 15-16 in Baltimore.
