TASTEFULLY SIMPLE FUNDRAISER - Message from Gail Jusiewicz.

Hello IAAP Members -

There still is time left to raise money for your chapter. To date, four of you have done a good job getting orders. One person has earned $20 in free products.

The rest of you can do that as well, but you need to put it out there and let people know you are doing this. Let folks know you are doing a fundraiser and they can help and have great food as well!

Remember, if someone wants to place a large order or even a mid-sized one and wants to use a credit card, I take the major ones!  American Express, Discover, Visa and Master Card. Also, I typically send an e-mail invoice so no exchanging of card numbers is required. Just mention you are doing a fundraiseer, you will be amazed how many folks will be excited to see a catalog.

Do you use Facebook? I set up a party, just friend me on Facebook and I will set you up as a host you can invite people! The party has a link so people can order online! Those far away can order too and ship directly!

CAP Exam - Computer-Based Testing

One of the initiatives of our Strategic Plan 2013-2018 is to move our CAP certification exam and OM specialty exam from paper and pencil testing to computer-based testing.

We are excited to announce that we currently plan to move to computer-based testing in 2015. We can’t share a lot of specifics yet; however, we can say that computer-based testing will be done through a company with secure testing centers and a consistent delivery system, with testing locations throughout North America.

In order to make this a smooth transition, we will not be providing testing for CAP certification or the OM specialty in November 2014. As such, the only test date in 2014 will be the upcoming May exams...
