CNG Past Events

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 meet eight times a year: four times in Chicago and four times in Washington, DC. Our meetings start 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. 

But 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.
