- Submit your application on-line with payment of the non-refundable $150 + HST fee
- Your Chapter will review the application and make recommendations to National,
- The National Executive will review the Chapter recommendation and either approve or follow up to advise why it was not approved
Step 2 – Upon Approval of Your Application:
- If National has approved your application, you will be notified, and will be able to begin using your new designation once CCI National has formally notified you of your success.
Maintaining the Designation
- Successful new designation members will be required to submit an Annual Report of their activities throughout the preceding year. The details of these reports should be similar to the designation criteria. These reports could be uploaded and saved in the National Database under each member’s name. There could be a random annual audit of some Reports to ensure compliance.
Failure to maintain current applicable membership in CCI and/or failure to provide annual reports supporting maintenance requirements will result in the loss of the LCCI designation. Per section 7 of the CCI-N Bylaws, should your membership be revoked, you will no longer meet the criteria to maintain your LCCI designation.
