How to Get Fees Reimbursed

The Certified Government Meeting Professional designation ("CGMP") is designed for planners and suppliers whose work is governed by the rules and regulations of the federal government. Individuals who have earned their CGMP have obtained the highest designation available that is specifically for government meeting professionals.
SGMP can reimburse planner and supplier members up to $500 for the CGMP exam fees, under certain conditions, after they pass the exam. Applicants for reimbursement must be members in good standing for no less than one year, must have demonstrated active participation in SGMP activities (active participation is defined as service as a board member or committee chair, active committee involvement, or contribution of newsletter articles or presentations), and must apply for reimbursement using the CGMP reimbursement form within 90 days from initial certification.
Chapters are also authorized to provide scholarships for CGMP fees.
