ABPCO has introduced a revalidation process for existing members, to ensure that they still meet the levels of excellence required for membership and to confirm their commitment to the industry.
ABPCO’s accreditation committee has historically ensured new member applications are appropriately scrutinised but until now have not reviewed the competence of existing members. ABPCO’s revalidation process will ensure that renewing members are still active within the industry and are upholding the association’s code of conduct, values and ability to deliver professionally for their clients.
The new process, which was introduced this year by the executive board balances the need for the association to demonstrate excellence and professionalism without being unduly burdensome on current members. It includes a commitment to industry best practice and ABPCO values as well as a declaration of commitment to the code of conduct. Renewing members also need to answer relevant questions selected from the new member application form.
