The Professional Convention Management Association has developed a new educational framework called "Principles of Professional Performance," the organization announced last week. Based on a member survey conducted earlier this year, the new guidelines divide planner knowledge into six main categories (planning, people, professionalism, programming, procedures and production), each with its own set of sub-categories. Dr. Glen Ramsbourg, senior director of education for PCMA, says the new educational outline will help PCMA's program coordinators to create balanced, meaningful programs.
