APGQ hasn't arrived yet, so no comment on the article. However, it seems pretty clear that all the recent discussions about membership, professionalism, defining ourselves and the profession, etc. have really culminated into a grassroots effort to make some changes and improvements.
Glad to see the topic of Continuing Education Credits coming back up. There wasn't any response to the topic back in August. A rehash below, so I don't have to retype my thoughts on it.

To take that one step further. Many professions have
annual Continuing Education requirements - for example,
lawyers have CLEs - Continuing Legal Education classes
that issue credits.
The approved classes earn meaningful, measurable
credits for the participant. In some professions the
CEs are required, in others it's personal achievement
or resume builders, perhaps even points towards college
Have wondered for awhile why our profession does not
have some form of this......
