Become a Volunteer

Now that you've proven your expertise in the meeting management field, it's time to share this expertise. By volunteering for the CMP program, you can help ensure that the program remains current and reflects the best practices in the industry. Volunteer opportunities arise often and when they do, CIC tries to match a CMP's skills and knowledge to the specific project. If you are interested in volunteering your time and expertise to the field, please fill out this volunteer form and submit it to certification@conventionindustry.org. Volunteering for the CMP program is a great way to network with your peers while also giving back to the meeting management industry.
