The impact of certification on meeting professionals who are members of Meeting Planners International is the focus of this project. Research is conducted by studying articles in refered and industrial journals as well as current publications. A questionnaire is sent to randomly selected Certified Meeting Professionals. The study uses three key indicators which are skill level, span of control, and salary level to determine if there is a direct impact on the certification of meeting planners. A time span of six months within receiving the Certified Meeting Professional designation is exercised to examine the outcomes of certification.
