The Certified Government Meeting Professional designation (CGMP) is designed for planners and suppliers whose work is governed by the rules and regulations of the federal government. The class will take place June 2-5 and is $595. Separate registration is required. 

The content for this course assumes that you have worked in the meetings management industry for at least one year and have a basic knowledge of industry terminology and acronyms. To be eligible to take the course, you must be an SGMP member in good standing for six months (or if you're a new member, show proof of one year working in the hospitality industry). After three full days of classroom instruction (evening group study sessions are recommended), the exam is taken on the fourth day.
