If you are considering becoming a certified member of the SBE via examination, take note: Chapter One members can be reimbursed for 50 percent of the examination fee. Here's how that'll work: Once I receive proof of payment, and verify it through Indianapolis, you'll receive your one-time reimbursement.
As you know, there are multiple certification examination periods each year (the dates are printed in the SBE Signal, and also available from the sbe.org website). I will, if requested and demand dictates, set up a venue for local administration of those exams.
If you know of a member who may wish to transfer to our Chapter, and if that member is certified, that transferring member will be reimbursed for half of their membership dues as a one-time welcome courtesy.
Certification is a great method of demonstrating technical knowledge and competence via independent verification. Preparing for the exam helps reinforce the concepts you already know and challenges you, like it did me, to learn some new ones.
My goal, as certification chair, would be for all the members of Chapter One to be certified.
