National industry association Meetings & Events Australia (MEA) has launched its new accreditation programme designed to recognise events industry practitioners who have reached the highest levels of professionalism in event management.
The new accreditation aims to set a new benchmark for individual recognition. The standard for becoming an MEA Accredited Event Professional will be based on both quantitative and qualitative assessments of career achievements, work history, continuing skills development, and education in addition to the applicant’s contribution to the events industry.
MEA CEO, Robyn Johnson, said: “MEA’s individual accreditation programme has undergone a long overdue review. The new programme acknowledges practical experience, industry knowledge and qualifications in event management. It acknowledges event professionals who are committed to continued learning and improvement of their skills and knowledge. Having the AEP (Accredited Event Professional) post-nominal will be the highest accolade in the Australian events community and will be highly prized.
“MEA will promote the benefits of becoming a MEA Accredited Event Professional to industry and government, and the value to clients and employers of engaging an Accredited Event Professional.”
