    Our guests, leaders of the Professional Certification Council, help us unpack the benefits of association certifications to individuals, employers, jobs, industries, economies, and society at large.

Denise Roosendaal, CAE, Executive Director for the Institute for Credentialing Excellence and Jeff Evans, Director Public Policy, ASAE, help bring to light why legislators and others must understand the full picture and what can be done to help solve the problem.
