Public Member Programming

Complimentary Registration Offer for Public Members

Public members (the consumers and end-users served by your profession) play a critical role in serving on certification governing boards. If the President/CEO of a certification organization signs up for a conference registration, I.C.E. will offer one (1) complimentary registration to the organization’s public member.

Please contact I.C.E. staff at to take advantage of this opportunity.
