Hispanics make up the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States and their organizations are at the forefront of world issues.
We're broadcasting LIVE from the site of the International Association of Hispanic Meeting Professionals' National Conference here in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Founded by Margaret Gonzalez, we'll talk about the rise of Hispanics in the travel and tourism industry and the newly created Certified Diversity Meeting Professional designation.
Since its founding in 1995, IAHMP membership has grown throughout the USA, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Portugal. This year, professional chapters will be established in Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala and Spain. In the USA, IAHMP is establishing chapters in the states and major cities where Hispanics are in the majority. The IAHMP Annual Conference is a training ground to help groom young professionals to become the future leaders in the industry. The educational programs at the conference are designed to accomplish the goal of empowering our community to succeed as executives within the meetings and hospitality industry.
IAHMP has also introduced the Certified Diversity Meeting Professional (CDMP) for industry professionals. The CDMP is the industry's only certification program which focuses diversity and sustainability issues as key skills and attributes in meeting planning. The CDMP distinguishes holders as career professionals who have demonstrated a high level of experience, skill and knowledge in this field. In a Global Economy the CDMP skills you learn will help enhance your career goals within the industry.
Carole Copeland Thomas is proud to serve as one of the co-facilitators for the CDMP program. The United States' first group of CDMP members will be announced during the convention.
