Have you ordered a sign to promote your certification yet?  These 24 x 18 high quality metal signs are a great way to promote the dedication your have made to agribusiness by becoming certified and maintaining your certification!   Decals promoting your certification for vehicles or glass doors (or wherever) are also available.

Get Your CEUS by December 31
There are no extensions.  CCAs should check their statements and make sure they have all their CEUs by December 31.   Failing to get all the CEUs necessary in all the correct categories can result in certification being revoked.  

The National CCA Office will charge a $50 reinstatement fee for CCAs who are out of compliance on CEUs and still need to self report CEUs or report missing CEUs after January 2017.  All Illinois CCAs whose CEUs are out of compliance will receive a red slip in the mail.  If you need help with self-reporting CEUs or missing CEUs please contact Lisa at (815) 844-6677 or by email and try to get yourself in compliance.
