  • Communicating with applicants regarding pending applications.
  • Reviewing proposed professional development agendas and descriptions, e.g., from IOA, sector committees, and others, to determine eligibility for PDH; approving the appropriate amount of PDH for each offering.
  • Collaborating with fellow committee members to ensure the fair and timely review of all proposals and applications.
  • Liaising with the CO-OP® Board to ensure mutual understanding and application of current CO-OP® policies and practices.  

Expectations and Requirements

The Recertification/Renewal Committee seeks a CO-OP® Certified Practitioner to join the committee. Committee members estimate they spend approximately two (2) hours a month on committee-related work. The committee meets four times a year – three times via Zoom and once at the Annual IOA Conference. Existing committee members will provide orientation, training, and mentoring.

Interested individuals should notify the IOA office and we will forward on to the committee chair.
