The Americas Incentive, Business Travel & Meetings Exhibition (AIBTM) has teamed with RecertTrack to support meeting professionals in continuing their career education and will showcase the first-ever “Official Education Tracking Service” during AIBTM 2014 in June.
As a Web-based platform, RecertTrack is able to track, update and hold education information, as well as remind users when recertification is due, effectively providing Certified Meeting Planners (CMPs), Certified Exhibition Managers (CEMs) and Certified Association Sales Executives (CASEs) and the like with a framework for managing their professional development.
“AIBTM is the first entity in the meeting industry to partner with RecertTrack and offer online document management and automated recertification tracking solution to meeting professionals,” said Cedric Calhoun, founder and chief executive of RecertTrack. “As a premier MICE organization, AIBTM understands that continuing education and certification is part of a greater need for better structure in career development.”
Calhoun will head the “To Certify or Not to Certify” education session that will focus on the importance of continuing education and the career path structure that is provided by certification programs. It will also highlight recent research studies on the MICE industry and how it impacts the future progression of the individual meeting planner and overall industry. This session will take place June 10 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. as part of the AIBTM professional education program.
