In order to recertify, you must complete 15 credit hours of industry-related, continuing education during your three-year recertification cycle. A CEM course or Health and Safety course are equivalent to 6 credit hours. Attendance at the CAEM conference can give you up to 6 credit hours as well, if you attend all sessions. Serving on a committee is one credit hour per year, per committee. Please contact Christiane Boin-Goessell to obtain the form to recertify at If you graduated in 2013, you definitely need to recertify before the end of 2016. 


Security, Risk & Crisis Management, November 1, 2016

Allstream Centre
Protecting the financial integrity of exhibitions is critical, and an essential element of that goal is proper risk assessment and planning. Risk management is a continuing process that identifies, analyzes, evaluates and addresses loss exposures and monitors risk control and financial resources for the purpose of mitigating the undesirable effects of loss. This involves evaluating the security needs for an event and if a crisis should occur, having a crisis management team in place to manage it.

Housing & Registration Management, November 2, 2016 
Allstream Centre
Additional services provided to attendees and exhibitors by the exhibition and event organizer require an understanding of the needs of the guests as well as a working knowledge of hotel operations. Two of the service elements intrinsic to most events today are arranging for accommodations of guests and identifying which guests will be allowed access to which portion of the event. Regardless of how these services will be delivered, planning must begin early to ensure housing and registration are easily accessed and do not become a hindrance to attending the event.
