CEC Roll-Over Policy
If you exceed CEC requirements, extra CECs will roll over at renewal and be applied to the next year’s membership term. Extra CECs that rollover will be valid 2 (two) years from your CEC completion date.
CEC Due Date
All CECs will be due at the time of membership renewal. If a member carries a credential earned through the NANP, the additional CECs required to maintain that credential will be due at the time of membership renewal, despite having a different re-credential date.
Example for a Board Certified Member:
- The membership renewal date is August 31; ten (10) CECs are due
- Board Certification renewal date is November 30; an additional five (5) CECs are due.
- All fifteen (15) CECs are due on August 31 each year
