For you AICPers planning on attending the chapter conference in Sioux
City at the end of the month (registration form at,
we will be submitting all the sessions to APA National for CM
credits. Each session will likely qualify for 1.0 to 1.5 credits,
depending on the length of the session. Unfortunately late last
month APA National took down the website where AICP members go to
enter CM credits, and also the website where providers enter courses
to receive credit. They are rebuilding the site to add more
features. It is our understanding that the sites will be back up and
running sometime in mid-November. Eric Jensen and I will work to get
the sessions from the conference entered as quickly as possible when
the websites come back up. After that there will be a period of
time, out of our control, when APA National will be reviewing and
approving the credits. The long and short of it is that you probably
won't be able to access your CM credit log and enter sessions from
the conference until late November or December at the earliest. Keep
your registration materials and notes from the conference someplace
handy as a reminder to enter your credits later. We will send out
another e-mail on the listserv when we know that the information on
the conference is up on the web.
