I have recently received the official news that I have successfully completed the Certified Fund-Raising Executive renewal process!
I’m proud of this accomplishment. While I have criticized CFRE International in the past, I remain committed to the credential that I first earned in 1994. Certifying development practitioners has many potential benefits, both to the individual and the nonprofit sector. Certification is one of the hallmarks of a true profession.
After I received the news about my successful renewal, I learned an interesting bit of trivia from Alicia Crittendon, Acting Certification Manager at CFRE International: Among those currently holding the CFRE credential, I am among the 11 percent who have held it the longest. While that is a point of great pride for me, it’s also a statistic that makes me feel just a bit old. Oh well, I’ll try to focus on the former.
That’s what Michael Rosen says… What do you say?
