ORLANDO, Fla., September 25, 2013 – Blue Spark Event Design, a full-service meeting planning, destination management and event design company, is pleased to announce that Heather Pilcher, CSEP is now credentialed as a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP), which is one of the meeting industry’s top professional designations.

This distinguished credential, recognized throughout the meetings, conventions, and exhibitions industry, demonstrates Mrs. Pilcher’s comprehensive knowledge of meeting management as well as a commitment to the profession.

Established in 1985, the mission of the CMP program is to elevate and enhance the professionalism of the meetings, conventions, exhibitions and events industry and the dedicated individuals who are responsible for meeting management.

Since its inception, the CMP designation has been earned by more than 14,000 individuals in 46 countries and territories worldwide.

Obtaining the CMP designation is a two-part process consisting of an application and a written examination, administered and monitored by an independent testing agency. Eligibility to take the examination is based on an extensive review of professional qualifications – candidates must have at least three years of employment in the meetings industry, and demonstrate responsibility and accountability for successful meetings. Additionally each applicant must have completed a minimum of 25 hours of industry specific continuing education or a meeting management internship.
