As a Collegiate Conference and Events Professional (CCEP), designees have demonstrated excellence in the field. To maintain the CCEP designation, ACCED-I requires all designees to recertify every three (3) years by completing requirements in education, experience and service to the industry, and paying a modest recertification fee.
Recertification demonstrates your continued dedication to maintaining a comprehensive, standardized body of practitioner knowledge in a rapidly changing higher education related profession. Recertification/ continuing professional development will occur via ACCED-I and industry involvement, determined by the CCEP Action Team. Recertification requirements in education, professional endeavors and service are outlined below; no workbook is required.
If however, you have allowed your recertification to completely lapse, (except under extenuating circumstances), you will then be required to re-apply and pay the CCEP application fee (in effect at that time).
The three year period begins on March 31 of the year you receive your CCEP designation. For example: those receiving an award in March 2017, the three-year certification window would begin March 31, 2017 and end March 31, 2020; those receiving in 2018 would be recertified by March 31, 2021 etc. For this transition year only, all current CCEPs would begin their recertification period on 3/31/2017 and be due on 3/31/2020.
All completed requirements will be submitted together with payment.
