Ashley Crunstedt

Certified Meeting Planner

ST. PAUL, Minn., January 22, 2018 --- Ashley Crunstedt, a 12-year veteran of Ewald Consulting’s event planning department, has received her Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) credentials from the Events Industry Council. The CMP designation is a globally-recognized badge of excellence in the meeting, convention, exhibition and event industry

Working to attain the 25 credits for over a year, Crunstedt has become the latest Ewald Consulting employee to achieve the credential. The CMP program was launched in 1985 to enhance the knowledge and performance of meeting professionals, promote the status and credibility of the meeting profession, and advance uniform standards of practice.

“Ashley is respected by both her clients and team members for her knowledge and experience,” said Suzanne Murphy, Ewald Consulting’s vice president of Professional Development and Events. “Anyone who has worked with her is not surprised to see her achieve this credential. We are very proud of her.”

Crunstedt will bring the skills and knowledge attained through the rigorous program to her clients, which include the Association for Continuing Legal Education, the Minnesota GIS/LIS Consortium, the Minnesota Telecom Alliance, the Minnesota Utility Contractors Association, the Product Development and Management Association, and Recognition Professionals Institute.

“Ewald Consulting has provided me with wonderful opportunities to continue my career growth since I have been a part of their team,” said Crunstedt, who has degrees in broadcast journalism and international studies and joined Ewald Consulting in 2006. “I am excited to show how this new accreditation will be a benefit for not just my work, but my colleagues and clients, as well.”
