TRENDS LIVE BREAKFAST ON ASSSOCIATION CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS, SEPT. 18, 2015, UNIVERSITY CLUB, WASHINGTON
VIDEO: What must you do first to establish a credentialing program?
There are many variables to consider before establishing a credentialing program, including whether you should and whether to go international.
These were the themes discussed at the TRENDS LIVE Breakfast on Association Credentialing Programs last week in Washington.
A sold-out room heard informative presentations by keynoters Anjali Weber, accreditation services director for the Institute of Credentialing Excellence, and Richard Bar, Esq., principal of GKG Law in Washingrton.
Weber said associations should think about the "What, How, Where and When" before establishing a credentialing program, such as should you focus on expanding domestically first? Does your organization already have an international presence?
Bar, who drew from his experiences working with organizations who wanted to establish a presence in China, discussed legal considerations, especially if you want to take your program international. For instance, what are the laws and regulations of the country in which you wish to have a presence? You will need experts to navigate the country or local laws and regulations including for annual/semi-annual filing and disclosures.
In the above video, Bar and the program's panelists discuss staffing an international office for your credentialing program. Panelists include Sara Lake, executive director, International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners; Cornelia Springer, certification services director, Society for Human Resource Management; and J. David Rozsa, CEO, Metacred. Weber was moderator.
