The Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) board of directors has approved a revised CMP blueprint, to be known as the CMP International Standards, set to take effect in 2012.
Sometimes known as a ‘body of knowledge,’ the new CMP International Standards also define and categorize a comprehensive summary of the competencies, skills and abilities a certificant must possess to be successful in his or her field.
These competencies are identified through a job analysis process, and this resulting document guides the development of the examination.
“Our standard practice is to update the blueprint every five years. The last blueprint was revised in 2007, so this update is right on schedule,” stated Karen Kotowski, CAE, CMP, chief executive officer of the Convention Industry Council (CIC), the industry body which administers the programme and awards the CMP certification.
