As a senior executive, a thorough understanding of several core areas of operation is essential. It is important to understand your budget, its role in the association's success, and efficient ways to manage and monitor its progress. Procedures to ensure smooth coordination between departments, internal and external customers, volunteers, and industry and service providers are also a necessary contribution to your success.

This course is designed to help you:

  • Understand the development and management of your organization and department's budget and its role in planning your overall budget;
  • Establish an effective financial reporting system;
  • Develop revenue streams and non dues revenue from your area;
  • Recruit, manage, train, and develop staff;
  • Learn effective skills for recruiting, interviewing, fostering teamwork, and creating career paths for your staff;
  • Provide clear and fair accountability, responsibility, feedback, and discipline;
  • Foster essential partnerships internally and externally;
  • Create RFP procedures and criteria for selecting appropriate business partners; and
  • Assess risks and develop appropriate risk assessment plans.

This course is excellent for helping you to prepare for the CAE examination or for renewing your CAE. You will receive 12 CAE hours for completing this program. You will also receive 14 CMP contact hours for each course towards certification, and if you complete all four courses available in the Business of Meetings curriculum, you will receive 58 total contact hours towards certification.

The Business of Meetings Certificate Program consists of four courses that prepare you to make meetings management a key strategy for your organization. Since they're offered each year, you can take them as your schedule permits. Upon completion of all four courses—Strategy and Marketing; Flawless Business Operations, Meetings and Expositions Excellence, and Leadership and Communication—you will receive the Business of Meetings Certificate.
