ABC serves its membership as a connection to the certification world, a voice for international certification issues, and a tool to build lifelong, professional relationships. We invite your program to join us.
Certification Program Membership
ABC is a communication network and resource center for certifying authorities, representing our membership on certification matters to national and international governmental agencies, organizations and professional associations.
Organizations administering environmental certification or licensing programs are eligible for Certification Program membership. Certification Program Members hold the right to nominate, vote, and hold office, along with other membership benefits.
Provisional Program Membership
At ABC, we work not only to assist existing certification programs, but to also provide resources for programs that require assistance developing and implementing a new certification program. Provisional Program Membership is available to developing programs looking to network with other industry professionals, access ABC Member resources, and keep informed of the latest in certification news as they develop their certifications. Once a Provisional Program Member launches its certification program, it may become eligible for Certification Program Member status and benefits.
While the provisional membership class cannot vote, nominate, hold office or have representation on the Board of Directors, members can still access the wealth of resources found at ABC and make the most of their membership. As the program meets the criteria and is approved by the Board of Directors, Certification Program Member status may be granted.
