I am very proud to now have the designation behind my name! I wanted to ensure that my personal practices were aligned with professional standards and enhance my skill set. I also wanted to connect with like-minded professionals to help me improve my practice. I feel that the designation will assist in advancing others' knowledge of our profession through queries about the meaning of CCMP. This creates a great opportunity to educate and advocate for the profession. Finally, having the CCMP designation legitimizes what we do as an internationally recognized, valuable addition to any organization or project.
