MPI Helps With Career Development
Whether you are an accomplished industry professional or a student looking for an intern position MPI NENY can help you grow in your career.
If you have been in the industry for a time as a planner or supplier you may consider applying for the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program. MPI NENY sponsors classes to study for the CMP exam. We have a great track record of candidates passing the exam after taking these classes.
On another level is MPI’s Certificate in Meeting Management program (CMM). This five-day intensive is designed for meeting professionals who want to be more strategic in their organizations or start their own businesses.
MPI NENY currently offers a scholarship for the CMP program, and plans to start a scholarship for the CMM program in the new future.

MPI members, both planners and suppliers, can also participate in the Professional Pathways skills assessment program that includes 160 skills in 13 Skill Families.
