Being part of FICP has provided me with a great forum to interact with peers, like-minded professionals, subject matter experts and colleagues from all across the industry who are facing the same problems that I’m dealing with on a daily basis and have solutions, experiences and best practices to share.

Build Your Knowledge
Through FICP’s in-person events, you will gain best practices to address your specific challenges as a professional at a financial services or insurance company, while discovering the latest trends for enhancing each of your meetings and events.
You will also enjoy anytime access to virtual education and resources – video tips and tricks; exclusive discussions, session recordings and presentation materials in TheNetwork; industry publications like Prevue magazine and FICP e-newsletters; and blogs on relevant topics – to reinforce or impart lessons from peers and thought leaders.
To help you demonstrate your mastery of meetings management, much of FICP’s educational content can also help you earn or retain your Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) or similar industry certification.
Grow Your Network
As an organization focused on meetings professionals at financial services and insurance companies, only FICP delivers access to peers who can relate to – and share their lessons learned from – experiences just like yours. FICP events, social media profiles, the printed directory and online community (TheNetwork
) allow you to build or renew relationships with those peers from across the U.S. and Canada.
Your FICP membership also provides you with the opportunity to create or strengthen relationships with an intimate group of hospitality partners who understand the nature of your work and can offer innovative ideas, creative solutions and perspectives from similar events across the globe.
Increase Your Influence
FICP membership benefits go beyond helping you do better work today. FICP is actively creating an environment where your full impact and value can be recognized within your company and the meetings and events industry.
Through education focused on strategic thinking, management skills, industry trends and broader financial services and insurance industry topics, you will prepare for senior-level roles and discussions at your company.
And, you can hone those skills through a volunteer leadership position, and as a contributor to FICP thought leadership pieces.
