The Certificate in Meeting Management (CMM), in no way affects the status of the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation.
In a totally non-competitive posture, the CMM is structured to complement the CMP designation.
Whereas the CMP is more tactical in nature, the CMM focuses on strategic initiatives and executive decision-making.
MPI’s Global Certification in Meeting Management is an elite, intensive-learning opportunity designed for tenured and highly accomplished members of our global meeting industry community who seek career acceleration and advancement and professional recognition. The program offers strategic business education, resulting in the most prestigious designation in the meetings and events industry. Through the Global CMM program, applicants benefit from career-focused courses taught by top-level instructors, experienced industry practitioners and industry leaders.
