The Convention Industry Council (CIC) has created a new online application and submission process for meeting professionals seeking its Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) certification, as well as its new CMP Healthcare (CMP-HC) subspecialty, it announced this month.

The new process allows CMP and CMP-HC candidates, as well as recertification candidates, to keep track of education and work experience as they're accumulated and submit their application online as soon as all prerequisites are met. Previously, they could do so only during a limited application period.

"With this new application process, those applying to sit for the CMP or CMP-HC will no longer be tied to specific application, registration, or scheduling deadlines," CIC explained in an official announcement. "Education activities and employment experience can be tracked as they are accumulated and once the prerequisites are met, the application can be submitted for approval."
