Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) Grad Spotlight: June 2022

Justine Crusciel, CMP
Event Marketing Manager at Trimble Transportation

How has being a CMP helped you? While not required for my current job, I look at it as an investment for my future. Having recently been unemployed due to layoffs, this makes me feel secure if it happens again, plus it shows I am dedicated and committed.

What advice do you have for those prepping for their CMP exam? Give yourself a lot of time but not too much time. Take every practice exam you can get your hands on- the Pocket Prep app was extremely helpful. Take the quizzes over and over. Making flash cards helps too.

What do you love about being an event professional? I love that no day is ever the same- I work best when I'm jumping around between different tasks. The best part is being onsite at an event and seeing all of the hard work pay off.
