What does the CNG provide?
How can CNG help you?
The CNG meetings connect certification professionals with challenges to certification professionals and vendors with solutions. They provide not only best practices, but also new and effective ways to develop and administer certification programs.
CNG held a virtual event on June 17, 2020 that was received with great enthusiasm. We were not able to accommodate everyone who wanted to join us live and offer a link to the recording for those who were not able to attend. Due to the size of the recording it has been uploaded to YouTube. Click on this link to view the June 17, 2020 virtual event: https://youtu.be/4QmlKqahzpo
The CNG Board and Planning committees will continue to support the CNG membership community while giving special consideration to the impact the pandemic will have on future events. Information will be posted to our website as it becomes available.

Networking at CNG
The certification profession is a small but mighty group. Often the certification department is a one-person team. So how do you meet and share information with this small community? Join the Certification Network Group!
CNG was established as a place for certification professionals to meet and network with each other, sharing their experiences, offering advice, and learning from professionals at the pinnacle of their certification career.
We normally meet either in-person or virtually eight times a year. We start our meetings with time to meet and chat with those who do the same thing you do! This networking time is followed by a presentation or round-table discussion on matters important to or emerging in the certification business.
How exactly should you approach these meetings and get to know others in this small-knit community? Members of the CNG Board offer these Networking Tips.
