Share |

LSAE promotes and supports the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) designation. Most programs that we offer qualify for CMP credit and will be noted on the individual sessions.


What is the CMP? 

The Convention Industry Council (CIC) launched the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program in 1985 to

  • enhance the knowledge and performance of meeting professionals,
  • promote the status and credibility of the meeting profession, and
  • advance uniform standards of practice.

The CMP credential is recognized globally as the badge of excellence in the meeting, convention, exhibition, and event industry. The qualifications for certification are based on professional experience, education, and a rigorous exam.


The CMP exam was developed and is maintained by meeting professionals from all over the world who volunteer their time to ensure that the program reflects the best practices in the meeting management field.More than 10,000 meeting professionals in 46 countries around the globe hold the CMP designation. This unique community represents every sector of the industry—from corporations and associations to government and institutional organizations.
