CIC's Newest Member!

Here we are in beautiful Vancouver, BC for the Greening the Hospitality Industry Conference 2008 where an exciting announcement was just made…

…the Green Meeting Industry Council will become the newest member of the Convention Industry Council! The Executive Board of the CIC approved the membership and the full board will ratify the decision in April.

The Convention Industry Council's 31 member organizations (now 32) represent more than 103,500 individuals and over 17,300 firms and properties involved in the meetings, conventions and exhibitions industry. This prestigious organization:

• administers the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) industry certification
• publishes The Convention Industry Council Manual and reference material
• spearheads the Accepted Practices Exchange (APEX) initiative.

The Green Meeting Industry Council is thrilled and honored. GMIC is looking forward to starting work with other council members on accepted practices for green meetings and events.
