Technology is wonderful – when it works! Despite some connection problems, we managed to complete a virtual meeting in September. We thought it would be helpful to clarify a few items for our members as we look toward the 2015 year.
First, a reminder to all licensees and applicants that, beginning in January 2015, all applicants for new or renewal licenses must have at least one coach/contact person on staff who holds the MP designation. This means that the applicant must be a current IAC member, have passed the written certification exam, and have an approved Learning Agreement in place.
Second, renewals are good for one year from the date of purchase. For example, a license granted in November of 2014 is valid until November 2015.
Third, licenses normally are renewed at the same category level (B or C) as the current license, unless a change is indicated in the license application. Renewal notices from IAC should indicate your current level of licensure.
The Licensing Committee approved one new application (from Peru) and one application is pending. With several of our recent licensees coming from Spanish-speaking nations, we welcome the IAC’s efforts to provide for licensing and (soon) certification processes in languages other than English.
Committee members Pepe del Rio, Deb Chisholm, and Charlie Boyer welcome your suggestions and comments. Contact the Licensing Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
