Certified Meeting Manager (CMM)

Home > Education > Certified Meeting Manager (CMM)

GBTA and MPI have joined forces to create the new CMM Program, delivering one global standard of excellence that will bolster your business management skills and advance your career.

This program is an intensive study program that offers a customized, participatory training program from university professors associated with renowned Darden School of Business from the University of Virginia. These esteemed professors will instruct you on topics critical for managers to master, including risk mitigation, business analytics and compliance, and strategic negotiation, after which you will pursue further learning about either meetings or business travel management.

The CMM study program concludes with a final project in which you address a real-life challenge that you face in your current professional role. Whether you are looking to update your business skills or take your career to the next level, the CMM Program will guide you in your own quest for excellence!

The criteria for participation in the CMM Program align with the Meeting and Business Event Competency Standards (MBECS). Each candidate will be evaluated through a comprehensive application process with documented panel review against the following criteria:

  • Minimum of 7-10 years of professional experience in the meeting and event or business travel industry
  • Minimum of 3-5 years of management experience with two years of profit and loss responsibility
  • Personal statement and letter of recommendation from professional colleague or supervisor
