  1. In September of each year, a notice will be emailed from the National Office to Squadron Commanders, copy to District Commanders, asking them to review their Squadron Recognized Examiner (RE) and Recognized Provider (RP) list to see which REs and RPs active status is up for renewal by the end of the calendar year.

They will have to sign their agreements and return to the National Office no later than the end of the calendar year with any required documentation and the payment of the noted processing fee required of non CPS-ECP active members.
  4. In mid-January, a reminder will be sent to all those who failed to return their signed agreement or to pay for processing fees. They will have two weeks to submit the required signed agreement and/or fee after which time they will be declared inactive if nothing is received.
