Connect With Likeminded Peers Within an Online Community

FICP's online communities are independent and self-managed groups on TheNetwork that provide our members with yet another opportunity for professional development and ways to connect with industry colleagues online. Community members decide on when to meet and what to discuss based on crowd-sourced topics. Here are three of FICP's online communities available on TheNetwork:

Canadian Shared Interest Group (SIG)

This SIG offers our Canadian meetings professional members an opportunity to discuss, learn and share ideas on the topics specific to the Canadian meetings industry.

CMP Cohort

Join FICP's CMP Cohort to actively engage and participate in our open-discussions and share thoughts, questions and best practices with your peers. Open only to FICP members and hospitality partners, this CMP Cohort hosts quarterly calls on specific topics that cohort members have requested to support them through their CMP Exam journeys!

Strategic Leaders Exchange

Launched in 2021, the Strategic Leaders Exchange is an exclusive online community of 50+ FICP members who are the most senior meetings professional in their organization.
