The Professional Conference Organisers Association (PCO) a leading industry body representing conference and event managers in Australia and New Zealand, has recently launched accreditation programs for individuals (CEM) and event management companies (CEC).
The PCO Accreditation Programs provide individuals and businesses with a blueprint recognising service standards and best business practice. Being accredited provides clients and industry with an assurance that the event manager and or business they are dealing with is committed to the highest quality business practices, consistency and reliability and dedication to continuous improvement
CEM accreditation can be achieved through 2 entry points – standard entry and ‘grandfather’ entry.
The ‘grandfather’ entry point will be in operation until the 30th April 2010 and only applies to those individuals who have been event managers for a minimum period of 5 years.
