Special D Events

On (Hopefully!) Becoming a CMP

CMP Journal Part 1

For years I have had it in the back of my mind that I should become a CMP. It is something I really want to do, but I haven’t yet done it. I have just reached my 10thyear planning events at Special D Events and that milestone has prompted me to just go for it. This is the year I will take the CMP exam and, hopefully, become a CMP!


As you may know, the Convention Industry Council offers the CMP or Certified Meeting Professional designation to certify competency in 27 areas of meeting management. While there are other certifications in the industry, the CMP certification is the most prestigious.

Taking this exam is a big investment — and not just monetarily. There are requirements to meet and paperwork to be completed…and that’s not including the studying! But with the support of my employer and my colleagues, I am going to do it. I have decided to keep a journal of the process and share my experience here on SDE’s blog. So, stay tuned and wish me luck!
