Calling all would be instructors and mentors!
Have you been in the meetings industry for a while? Already have the CMP designation? Perhaps you would like to mentor or develop your teaching abilities. MPISCC CMP Study Group Committee is looking to develop new instructors and coordinators for these ongoing study groups.
