RecertTrack Announces the Association, Event and Meetings Industry’s First Portal Featuring an e-Certification Renewal Solution, Global Education and News

RecertTrack (a US based company) is announcing that its e-certification renewal support and tracking solution has expanded its portfolio of services to include global education, research, trends and news for the nearly 700,000 association, meetings and event professionals worldwide. RecertTrack is the first company to offer an e-certification renewal support solution to certified professionals in the sector. Access to this unique, online tool is available to individuals for .99 at http://www.recerttrack.com/assn-meetings.

Combining the elements of an online e-certification renewal solution, global news and education opportunities to meet the needs of the busy association and meetings professional, were the direct result of research conducted across the industry. Results showed that these professionals are constantly in search of more centralized resources to make an individual’s business life more manageable.

Initially, this e-certification solution was only provided to CAE candidates. RecertTrack now offers a centralized site that will gather critical industry education, wherever it may take place around the world. It will also have industry news plus trends and research. Keeping track of hard-copy documentation to support claims of continuing professional development is currently standard practice for industries whose members have some professional certification or licenses that require validation and renewal. The web-based tracking solution of RecertTrack for recertification eliminates paper waste, and creates a greener and more efficient system for anyone who has a credential or license that needs to be renewed. It will also provide information and detail on continuing education that is a substantial part of the careers of individuals in the association, meetings and events industry. In the US alone there are more than 30 different certification programs and many more internationally.

“This type of service portal is desperately needed in this industry that has put an emphasis and priority on increasing our value as meeting professionals. With the variety of certification programs available, an aggregator that manages global education and news as well as the storage of documentation, activities and reminders for individuals certified through these programs is making the best use of technology to fit a need in the meetings industry”, says Michael Dominguez, CHSE, Chair-Elect of MPI International Board of Directors.

Joan Eisenstodt, Meetings & Hospitality Consultant, Facilitator & Trainer says: “Keeping track of day-to-day tasks becomes more complicated the busier we get. Remembering professional development in which we’ve participated and for which we’ve earned continuing education units is trickier and often not remembered until it’s time to re-certify. RecertTrack presents an option to help each of us and our professional associations make it easier. For that I am grateful!”

Along with making storage and delivery of certification renewal more efficient, RecertTrack will provide certified professionals in the association and meetings industry with the ability to track multiple certifications in a centralized profile. This reduces the need to store recertification information in more than one system and will provide automatic reminders via email based on user preference or frequency.

RecertTrack subscriber Michelle W. Jones, CMP, Director, Convention & Meeting Services, International Parking Institute shares her thoughts: “I have been a paid subscriber since I learned of RecertTrack in 2010 because I saw the value immediately. I am very organized, but this made my life easier and allowed me to focus on my job and not where I was in my recertification cycle. Now that RecertTrack has expanded its service to include global education and news it is truly an online ‘one-stop shop’ for me as a meeting professional. Now, I won’t have to go searching for industry news or where to get my continuing education. It will all be in one centralized location. The Association and Meetings Professionals Advancement Portal will benefit the entire industry regardless of where you are in the world.”

According to RecertTrack CEO & Founder A. Cedric Calhoun, FASAE, CAE, certified/licensed professionals in the association and meetings industry are seeking a solution that makes access to education and news as well as the recertification process less cumbersome, less time-consuming, and less stressful; “I have been in the association management industry for over 16 years. Across the board, very little assistance exists beyond the recertification manuals, which are helpful, but I felt more needed to be done. So, out of my own frustration and an identified need I set out to build RecertTrack to help the certified professional to manage their recertification activities and store their documentation all in a centralized location” says Calhoun,

“At the end of the day, I want to provide an affordable industry solution through RecertTrack that will save individuals and organizations time and resources to devote back to their personal and professional lives,” he added.
