AICP to Consolidate CM Reporting Periods

As part of ongoing efforts to streamline and improve the CM program, AICP is consolidating all AICP members into the same two-year reporting period cycle. If your reporting period deadline ends in December 31, 2020 your reporting deadline has been extended to December 31, 2021 to implement this update. This one-time extension provides you with an additional year to earn your CM credits.

More details:

  • Your extended reporting period deadline will be reflected in your CM log by early December. 

  • The total number of CM credits required for this reporting period will remain the same.

  • Any credits earned from January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2021 will be eligible to be claimed for this reporting period. 

  • If you have a CM exemption for the 2019-2020 reporting period, your exemption will remain in effect through December 31, 2021.

  • You will be able to review and close your reporting period and open the 2022-2023 reporting period beginning January 1, 2022.

  • You may carry over a total of 16 CM earned during this reporting period to the 2022-2023 reporting period.
