This Association and Meetings Professionals Advancement Portal currently tracks 22 industry certifications including the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP), Certified Association Executive (CAE), Destination Management Certified Professional (DMCP) and Certified Special Events Professional (CSEP).

Michael Dominguez, CHSE, Chair-Elect of MPI International Board of Directors, said: "This type of service portal is desperately needed in this industry that has put an emphasis and priority on increasing our value as meeting professionals. With the variety of certification programs available, an aggregator that manages global education and news as well as the storage of documentation, activities and reminders for individuals certified through these programs is making the best use of technology to fit a need in the meetings industry."

RecertTrack subscriber Michelle W. Jones, CMP, Director, Convention & Meeting Services, International Parking Institute said: "I have been a paid subscriber since I learned of RecertTrack in 2010. I am very organized, but this made my life easier and allowed me to focus on my job and not where I was in my recertification cycle."

RecertTrack was set up by Cedric Calhoun, a US-based association executive director and fellow of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE).
