Description:

This session continues and expands upon well-received updates at prior ICE Exchanges focusing on legislative initiatives at the state level contesting rigorous lifelong learning programs administered by certification organizations.  This year, Denise Roosendaal will bring attendees up-to-date on the activities of the Professional Certification Coalition (PCC), a collaboration between ICE, the American Society of Association Executives, (ASAE) and the Pillsbury Law Firm created to combat legislation which threatens voluntary professional credentialing.  Tom Granatir from the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) will describe his organization’s response to ongoing challenges to continuing certification and to new legislation and litigation raising anti-trust issues.  David Swankin of the Citizen Advocacy Center (CAC) will speak about why consumers should be concerned about these legislative initiatives and will stress the importance of promoting public awareness.  The session will be moderated by Ed Susank, public member of the board of the National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA).
