CMP Study Groups

The Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program for individuals who are currently involved in the meetings industry and want to elevate their professional stature.

The Convention Industry Council (CIC) sets requirements for the CMP certification based on professional experience and an academic examination. As the foremost certification program of today's meetings, conventions and exhibitions industry, the CMP designation recognizes those who have achieved the industry's highest standard of professionalism.

MPI Texas Hill Country Chapter has a long history of providing outstanding study groups in both Austin and San Antonio, open to members and non-members. Our CMP Study Groups are led by CMP facilitators who provide guidance in the application and test-taking processes. We are constantly updating our program to reflect the latest information from CIC. Review our class schedules to become part of our successful study program.!

"In 2006, my boss encouraged me to apply for my CMP. The first thing I did was to join MPI Texas Hill Country Chapter and then apply with CIC for my CMP and started attending the THCC study groups. Boy was I amazed!!?? I quickly became involved with the chapter by joining the Membership Committee, and met new friends from the CMP study group, all of which I still reach out to with questions that come up regarding meetings! I enjoy being a part of the MPI THCC chapter as it continues to provide a wealth of information and networking opportunities."
