Congratulations to our latest Certified Venue Professionals: Stephen Patterson, Senior Convention Services Manager, Las Vegas Convention Center; Christine Spiller, Event Operations Director, Pepsi Center; Jana Brooks, Events and Tenant Services Manager, Maryland Stadium Authority; Donna Miller Brown, Audio Production Supervisor, Kauffman Center for Performing Arts; Lindsey Richeaux, Senior Event Manager, Colorado Convention Center.
Thanks to the generous funding and support from the IAVM Foundation, the CVP program was launched in August 2015 at VenueConnect in Baltimore. It recognizes the competence of middle-to-senior-level managers of public assembly venues as well as assisting the managers in creating a professional roadmap in the venue industry.
The CVP designation says three important things about an individual: he or she is a capable professional, is committed to the industry, and is pledged to continued professional growth and development. Venue professionals who earn the CVP designation are recognized, by those inside and outside the industry, as skilled in their profession.
