The Events Industry Council (EIC), the global voice of the business events industry on advocacy, research, professional recognition, and standards, has launched its new CMP Fellows Programme, one of a number of new initiatives designed to enhance the association’s highly regarded CMP programme both in terms of the depth of its offer, as well as its global reach.
The CMP Fellows programme will recognize and reward CMPs and/or Emeritus who continue to make a significant investment towards the betterment of the events industry and the community of people working within it. Fellowship is open to those with at least 10 years’ tenure as a CMP or Emeritus who can provide robust evidence of engagement and experience within the events industry.
A new class of Fellows will be inducted annually, with benefits including access to exclusive networking opportunities, peer-to-peer collaborations and opportunities at EIC and other industry events.
“Ensuring event professionals can benefit from the opportunities afforded by continued high quality education is critical to the future growth of our industry. Our CMP credential has long been regarded as the badge of excellence in the global events industry and these new initiatives ensure that as many event professionals as possible have ready access to and can benefit from accreditation,” said Amy Calvert, CEO of the EIC.
