Certification Motion Passes

The development of a certification program has been approved by the
AIC membership with 62% voting in favor.  The official count was 739
Yes and 450 No.

In developing a certification program plan, the voices of all
members are welcomed and indeed depended upon.  The months ahead
will afford many opportunities to carefully construct a
certification program that will hold benefits for all members of the
AIC and for the profession as a whole.  The development process
itself, including the dialogues and debates, drafting and
redrafting, will be extremely valuable to all of us and no doubt
raise many new avenues for improving the AIC. Opportunities for
discussions will include membership representation at the Internal
Advisory Group Meetings, the Annual Meeting Issues Sessions, the
newsletter and on the various list serves.   Suggestions and
comments are always welcome by contacting a member of the Task Force
on Certification, chairs of Specialty Groups and Committees and by
contacting the board.

I would like to thank all those who have contributed to this effort,
those who took the time to comment and question and especially the
1,189 members who cast their vote.  This is, I believe, the largest
response to an all member vote ever received in the organization.
The response points to the interest in this topic and speaks highly
of the membership's commitment to the organization and to the
profession. This is an exciting initiative we are about to embark
on...and an even more exciting and productive set of dialogues
awaits us all.

Jerry Podany
President, AIC/FAIC
