Alright, I'm one of those folks that is still looking to join AICP despite their *ahem* imperfect certification maintenance program. My employer is paying for my exam. I submitted my application several days prior to the deadline for the May exam, and followed-up with my education/employment verification a week later (they give three weeks). So, I met all of their required deadlines.
According to the AICP website, test notices should have been sent by email on April 4th. I have not heard so much as a whisper from them. My application is still listed as "pending and under review" on the AICP website. No one has picked up the phone when I called, and all I get are auto-responses from email@example.com.
I met my deadlines, so I expect AICP to meet theirs. If they can't, then they need to find some people that can review these applications in a timely manner. These applications are not rocket science. If I can't sit for the AICP exam in May, it will affect whether I receive a raise in the next fiscal year (starts in October).
Has anyone else not heard from AICP on their May applications?
