Session Title: What is the Convention Industry Council (CIC)
and What Can They Do for Me?
“Advancing the Meetings, Conventions, Exhibitions and Events Industry” is the tagline for the Convention Industry Council (CIC.) There are 33 member organizations, including MPI that comprise the board of directors. In addition to administering the CMP program, they also facilitate the exchange of information on global trends and topics, promulgate excellence in best practices and guidelines, collaborate on industry issues and advocate for the value of the meetings industry.
Our speaker, Kasey Connors, is the Director of Marketing and Communications for CIC where she oversees the Marketing and Promotion of all CIC initiatives including the CMP Program. Kasey developed the CMP Preferred Provider program and is currently working on launching a CMP job board. She also manages CIC’s APEX Standards Committee which provides resources overall to the meetings, events and exhibition industry. Mrs. Connors has over 10 years’ experience in associations covering events, volunteer management, marketing and program management.
