MPI and GBTA Recognize New CMM Group, Announce Upcoming Program Dates

Meeting Professionals International (MPI) and the GBTA Foundation, the education and research arm of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), recently presented the distinguished Certificate in Meeting Management (CMM) to 22 more meeting and travel professionals, increasing the total number of CMM holders to 1,044 worldwide. This class participated in the program held August 27 – 31, 2015, in Denver. 

 

The associations have also announced two programs scheduled for later this year in the U.S. The first program is scheduled for May 5 – 9 in Las Vegas, and the second is slated for August 24 – 28 in Norfolk, Virginia. Additional program dates will be announced later this year.

 

“MPI and GBTA extend our sincerest congratulations to each of these leaders on their significant achievement,” said Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI. “The CMM Program has consistently received high satisfaction scores from each class of participants since we updated the program and we cannot be more pleased.” 

 

Produced by the MPI Academy and the GBTA Academy, the CMM program is a three-phased comprehensive business education program, featuring a 3.5 day on-site immersion program comprised of rigorous business education courses delivered in a participatory learning format by professors from the renowned Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. It also includes a virtual boot camp with on-demand offerings focused in both meeting management and business travel management and requires the development and evaluation of an independent work-based, business project.
