Is a CMP Study Group available through MPI CRV?

Yes, Here's how MPI CRV can support your success:

MPI CRV offers a face-to-face CMP Study Group each year to current members of our Chapter.  We require a minimum of 3 CMP candidates to run our 11-week program held in the greater Hartford area.  The course helps both planner and supplier members prepare for a successful completion of the CMP exam.  Members who have been in the meeting industry long enough to meet the application’s requirements for work experience are welcome to attend.
