Certification Board actions

The ESA Certification Board is a hard-working group of volunteers who give considerably of their time to support the programs offered by ESA. The board meets quarterly with three of the meetings being teleconferences and one in person (held in conjunction with the ESA Annual Meeting). Board meetings are generally closed, though visitors are occasionally invited by the Certification Board Director or the staff Director of Certification.

The most recent board meeting was held on the phone on September 10th. Actions of note taken by the board recently include:

  • The fees for retesting on a BCE exam will be set to match the ACE retesting fees.
  • The bylaws for service on the Certification Board are going to be revised in an attempt to simplify the structure of the Board. 
  • The Board authorized additional four CEUs to be offered to those BCEs who attend the annual BCE symposia
  • Other recent Board actions were covered in an earlier post.
The next meeting of the Certification Board is set for November 10th, 2013 in Austin, TX from 2-5pm. ACEs and BCEs who have business before the board are encouraged to submit requests for adding to the agenda prior to the 25th of October.
