Certified Government Meeting Professional Credential

Questions about the CGMP certification? Contact us at Education@sgmp.org

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. Individuals who have earned their CGMP have obtained the highest designation available that is specifically for government meeting professionals.

The CGMP is recognized in the hospitality industry; many government contracts now require planners working on the contract have their government certification.

In order to take the CGMP Class and exam you must have an active SGMP membership and be able to document at least 1 year experience in the hospitality industry.  

In addition to demonstrating your commitment to enhancing your government expertise and to improving the quality of your meetings, earning your CGMP has numerous benefits for your career and for your employer.
