Dear IPT Members, 

As the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to develop, IPT is monitoring and following the guidance of federal, state, and local public health officials to ensure the Institute is taking all the necessary actions to protect our members and staff. As such, below is an update regarding staffing and future programs. 

Effective today, the IPT office will be closed until April 15, 2020 with staff working remotely. All calls to the IPT office, both main and direct lines, will be sent directly to the voicemail system and monitored regularly. Direct communication with the IPT staff will be available via email and the IPT website.  Every effort will be made to ensure IPT's operations continue with minimal interruption, but know there may be delays in responding to inquiries. 
 
Sales Tax School II has been rescheduled for July. The Credits & Incentives School has been rescheduled for August.

IPT's Annual Conference, scheduled for June 21 - 24, in Chicago, IL is set to proceed, subject to any city, county, or state restrictions.  We are working closely with the Hilton Chicago in preparation for any mandated changes, but are optimistic this program as well as CMI/CCIP testing, and the Annual Business Meeting will remain on track. 
 
The decision to cancel or postpone a program is very difficult, but the safety and well-being of IPT’s members and guests is our highest priority. IPT will always take deliberate and prudent action to ensure programs are held in safe environments. To this end, should there be any changes to future programs, IPT will communicate the same as soon as permissibly possible. 
 
Finally, and most importantly, I wish safety and good health to all of you, your families, and loved ones during this time of uncertainty.
 
Thank you, 
 
Chris G. Muntifering, CMI
IPT Executive Director

IPT Designations

In 1979, the Institute for Professionals in Taxation adopted a professional designation program for qualified members.  The Institute , through its CMI designation program, is the first to recognize professional achievement in property taxation. This designation is widely known as a mark of achievement and distinction in the property tax field.

Earning the CMI designation is both a personal achievement and a credit to the profession. The CMI designation is more than a mere credential; it is a demonstration of expertise in business property taxation.  Since the beginning of the CMI professional designation program in 1979, over 1,000 property tax professionals have earned the CMI designation.  By earning the CMI designation, you can add to these numbers and have your professional expertise recognized. 

The major requirements for the CMI professional designation include membership in the Institute, property tax administrative experience, successful completion of the IPT property tax schools, other educational requirements, and successful completion of both comprehensive written and oral examinations. In addition, after attaining the CMI professional designation, certified members are required to continue their education by attendance at IPT and other approved educational programs.  Full details on the Continuing Education Requirements for active CMIs may be found here.
