How do I apply for recertification points? What are the criteria to qualify?
Visit the Recertification landing page on the IAAP headquarters website for directions and an application.
How do I sign the Commitment Agreement?
Download and print the form, read it and sign it. Chapters may consider keeping a copy but is not required.
What do I do with the signed Commitment Agreement?
The agreement should be kept on file for one full fiscal year after submitting the Member of Excellence application along with all other related documentation.
My chapter published a short article I wrote. Will this count?
Anyone who participates in the IAAP web community forum discussions or submit an article for an IAAP publication (chapter, division or international level) will have met this criterion.
Education & Training
I already have a degree or certification? Will it count again next year?
Once a member holds a degree, certificate or equivalent (a minimum one year in length) from an accredited college or earns a Microsoft certification, it will count for as long as the degree or certification is valid.
My company pays my dues and I cannot ensure they will be paid on time.
Dues notices are sent two months in advance, this should be enough time for a company to process the invoice.
Leadership Development & Roles
What leadership roles are eligible?
Members can serve as a chapter, division or international officer, committee chair, or committee member; or serve as an RTF Trustee; or serve on a Student Chapter advisory board or the school’s advisory board for the office administration program… and just by participating on a committee an individual can earn this point.
Programs & Participation
What do I have to do to meet this?
A member will need to conduct a public presentation, program or training at least 60 minutes in length. It is 60 minutes because that is the minimum time required for a presentation to offer recertification points.
Recruitment & Retention
I am not able to attend all my chapter's meetings. How can I meet the minimum of 8 events?
Any combination of eight chapter, division or international sponsored meetings, programs or events qualifies.
