APA National sent me cumulative statistics that show the CM credit
hours earned by Iowa AICP members as of March 31. Following is the breakdown:
16 members have 32 or more credits, thus meeting all requirements for
the 2008-2009 reporting period.
15 have 24 to 31.75 credit hours
13 have 16 to 23.75 credit hours
19 have 8 to 15.75 credit hours
8 have 1 to 7.75 credit hours
22 have 0 credit hours reported to APA.
The best chances to big up large numbers of credits in the shortest
amount of time are obviously the National Conference that begins this
Saturday in Minneapolis, and the Iowa Chapter conference October
28-30 in Des Moines. There are other opportunities for credits from
APA webinars and audio conference. It will be difficult for those in
the bottom two categories to get to 32 credits without going to one
or both of these conferences.
If you need any information that will help you along with earning
your credits please don't hesitate to contact me (except next week,
of course, when I'll be in Minneapolis earning credits for myself!).
