There is no benefit if those who go through the CG process don't care that the BCG
has not gone through proper certification.  The benefit is respect that the board is
in compliance with the standards set by the United States government for certifying
boards meaning that it is a real certifying board recognized by the United States
government.  Your certification means something in court if needed.  It would not
be a self-made designation.

Elizabeth was right to put up the link to ICE (NOCA).  It is the place to go for
certifying boards properly in the United States.

You seem pretty gung-ho for this agency, but I am curious as to what would
be gained by having BCG as part of this body.  What benefits do you see the
CGs getting from their extra cost, regardless of the amount?
