From the Board: Memories, a Celebration, and a Call to Action: A President’s Reflection on the 2012 Conference
By now you should know that 2012 is ISPI’s 50 anniversary. It is also the 20th anniversary of our handbooks and the 10th of our certification. A lot has happened in the last 50 years and I’m delighted at the opportunity to share my reflections on how the 2012 conference honored our past while providing direction for the future.
Book Review: Performance-Based Certification–How to Design a Valid, Defensible, Cost-Effective Program
I reviewed this book through the lens of more than 37 years in emergency services, specifically the fire service. Certifications are a significant part of the fire service, as opposed to degrees from institutions of higher learning. Hale’s book hits a home run by providing us with a long-awaited reference book about the nuts and bolts of performance-based certification.
Each year, ISPI’s President chooses members to recognize as invaluable to the success of his or her presidency. Many people have contributed over the past year; however, the following people have made significant contributions including pulling together the 50th celebration, spearheading work on the CAGC, fostering our relationships with leaders in developing markets, promoting ISPI in other professions, and stewarding the work of key committees.
