Cori Dossett, CEM, CMP, CITP

Cori received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Texas A&M University (1995), and earned a Certified Meeting Planner (CMP) in January 2010, the Certified Exhibit Manager (CEM) credential in December 2005 and the Certified Incentive Travel Professional (CITP) in November 2020.

Cori began her non-profit career in 2001 as the Exhibits Manager at a large, nationally-recognized non-profit in Alexandria, VA, where she learned and excelled in trade show management and the fundraising and development aspects of association management through successfully selling, producing and managing two large trade shows each year. Cori moved on to oversee the entire conference function at a small non-profit, and then added the skills of Director of Marketing to her repertoire. In September of 2008, she became the Director of Meetings at a mid-size association. Leading this department, Cori was responsible for one biennial conference, five biennial regional conferences, two annual meetings of the board of directors, and numerous committee meetings.

In the Fall of 2011, Cori decided to fulfill a life-long dream of owning her own business, and made that dream a reality by signing her first three clients by the end of that year. Cori has served in a variety of volunteer leadership capacities, won numerous industry awards (especially for leadership and meeting planning skill) and has been quoted in a variety of industry publications as a field expert.
