IPT wants to make participation on Committees as widely available to members as possible and promotes the appointment of newer members and those who have not have previously served on a Committee. Toward that end, you will find posted here
a list of all committees, with a description of each committee’s responsibilities, and the names and email addresses of the chairs for each committee. Click on the Chair’s email address and send an email letting the chair know your interest and qualifications for the committee. Others are copied on your email with a view toward assisting you in finding a place for you in IPT’s committees. Appointment to the committee of your choice is not guaranteed, of course, but every effort to accommodate your interests will be made. Please understand that School committee members are often the instructors for their Schools and that, because they typically serve for several years, there are fewer openings on School committees than on other program committees. An individual will ordinarily be appointed to no more than one program committee in a given year.
News for CMI Candidates
CMI Candidate Application and Exam Fees
Beginning January 1, 2014, CMI Candidate Application and Exam fees will change to the following:
There will be a $100 CMI candidate application fee and $50 fee per exam. Candidates will pay $150 at the time of application to cover the application fee and first exam fee. All fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable to another exam administration or another candidate. However, if a candidate cancels the registration for an exam prior to the cut-off date (30 days prior to the exam), the fee may be used at the next exam opportunity. The $50 exam fee will apply to candidates taking both the written and oral exams, or only the written exam or oral exam.
CMI Candidate Exam Review Policy
In order to provide concrete, objective and standardized information to candidates following an unsuccessful CMI exam attempt, the following policy will replace the current exam review policy. It will be implemented beginning November 2013 for Property Tax and June 2014 for Income and Sales Tax.
Candidates who did not pass the written and/or oral exam will receive a list of categories in which further study and/or experience is needed as indicated by their exam performance.
New Credits & Incentives School and Designation
The IPT Board of Governors approved the creation of a Credits and Incentives School and Certified Credits & Incentives
Credits and Incentives School
The Credits and Incentive School Committee is hard at work developing curriculum specific to the unique field of Credits and Incentives. The school will utilize both distance learning and face-to-face meetings. The committee expects to launch the Credits and Incentives School in April 2014.
Certified Credits and Incentives Professional (CCIP)
A committee of experienced professionals is developing the certification program which will be built on experience, education, and examination requirements similar to those in the CMI programs. The committee is working to ensure that the Certified Credits and Incentives Professional (CCIP) designation will gain the same stature the CMI designation holds as a measure of professional competence and accomplishment. A brochure and application will be made available to the IPT membership in January 2014 with the first exam opportunity for eligible candidates in June 2014.
