CEM Learning Journey Expanded to Recognize Industry Veterans

The International Association of Exhibitions and Events® (IAEE) announced a new opportunity available in its CEM Learning Journey, the CEM Fellows program. The CEM Fellows program is an honorary recognition program for those in the exhibitions and events industry at the pinnacle of their careers.

IAEE CEM Fellows represent a community of mentors, teachers and thought leaders who have reached a significant level of responsibility, have been identified as a leader, and have shown a continued service through education and volunteerism.

“We want to recognize professionals who have proven their ability to influence others through their successful track record of accomplishments,” said IAEE President and CEO Marsha Flanagan, M.Ed., CEM. “Through their years of experience, leadership and dedication, CEM Fellows shape the industry’s future by nurturing and inspiring the next generation of exhibition professionals.”

The CEM Fellows program is available to professionals who currently hold their CEM or CEM-AP designations in good standing. Interested candidates may be nominated or self-nominate, must have at least 15 years of professional experience in the exhibitions and events industry, and must demonstrate leadership commitment and a continued service to the industry.
