Research and Trends
Each year, Pantone, the world expert on color, releases their color of the year. As our industry continues to push the boundaries of sustainable events, we were thrilled to see the color for this year land within one of our favorite tones – greenery! The word green and sustainability have always gone hand-in-hand. For 2017, let it inspire you in a whole new way!
This time of year, there are a proliferation of posts about top trends. Sometimes these are based on research, other times more on the author’s views or opinions. Read our "wish list" of some hope to be the top trends for 2017.
You probably know that you have to submit continuing education activities for recertification. But, did you know that half of your continuing education credits can be non-industry specific if the learning objective of the session/course is related to one of the 10 domains of the CMP International Standards? 

What does "non-industry specific but relating to the CMP Standards" mean? It means, for example, that if you have a general course topic entitled "Project Management 101," it can be used for continuing education. Since the course is not event/meeting specific, it will be counted towards your non-industry-specific hours as Project Management is a domain in the CMP International Standards. Questions on the topic? The CMP Recertification Handbook is a great resource. You may also contact a member of the CMP team for answers.
