Implementation of New CPD Requirements – We Want Your Comments

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The CIA Board seeks member feedback on proposed changes to the continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. These changes affect the Bylaws, the CPD qualification standard, and several CIA policy documents, and include the following:

  • Reduction of the total number of CPD hours required from 100 to 80;
  • Introduction of core professionalism requirements;
  • Introduction of a formal application process for exemptions from the CPD requirements;
  • A more rigorous audit process; and
  • Possible suspension of membership for members who do not qualify for an exemption and who fail to comply with the CPD requirements.

If approved, these changes would be effective for CPD reporting at January 1, 2020.

“Please be sure to let us know what you think—what you agree with and what you don't,” says CIA President Sharon Giffen. “Member input is critical and this matter will affect all of us.”

Please submit comments by November 22, 2017 through the online form or by e-mail to Lynn Blackburn, director, professional practice and volunteer services.
