Adding JD to CMP


I got an interesting note from a friend recently who was musing over what may turn into a trend for industry attorneys: Combining law degrees with the CMP certification. She now knows of five people who are either CMP-bearing planners going into the law, or lawyers who want to learn more about the meetings industry and have pursued the CMP designation.

I know, five people does not a trend make, but I thought it was interesting, and, as my friend noted, a commentary on the meetings industry--that we need more lawyers who understand the business.
