The Certification Network Group is led by a group of volunteers who strive to provide meaningful gatherings for individuals and organizations interested in certification. The Board of Directors develops and initiates opportunities for certification professionals to learn, network and share best practices in the Chicago and Washington, DC, areas. The Board meets monthly to plan the strategy of the CNG and is governed by and abides by the Bylaws of the organization. These volunteers do the work necessary to keep the value of the group high for all who work in the certification and accreditation industry.

CNG depends on a network of dedicated professionals in the certification field to provide free educational and networking events in Chicago and Washington, DC.
