The Philadelphia Chapter will be hosting a CPD Review Class on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center located at 76 Industrial Highway in Essington, PA.  David Bailey of the Washington, DC ASPE Chapter will be conducting the class from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  Members of neighboring ASPE Chapters are more than welcome to attend the session as well.  All ASPE Members interested in attending the CPD review class are required to pre-register by forwarding a message to Dawn Bishop at the following email address: dawn1aspepresident@gmail.com.  The cost of the review class is $25 payable in advance to hold your seat.

The exams are scheduled to take place on April 6th and 7th at testing sites across the country.  Note: Written registration forms are due by March 1st and online registration closes March 24th.  For the third straight year, the CPD exam will be open book.  Candidates are allowed to bring up to six (6) manuals/books to the testing site. 

On the day of the CPD review class, attendees are expected to bring a calculator, writing materials, the CPD Review Manual, and a hard copy of (or a means of reviewing electronically) all attachments that will be sent to you via email after you have registered.  A limited number of the CPD Review Manuals will be available for sale at the onset of the review class.  You may ensure your copy at the time you register by stating you would like to reserve one.  Cost of the CPD Review Manual is $27.  This is a special price available to those attending the CPD Review Class.

If you have never been an ASPE Member (or your membership has lapsed) and you wish to save a few dollars, then contact your local ASPE Chapter VP Membership person to process your annual ASPE Membership prior to registering for the CPD exam with Society.  It will be like getting a year’s membership free - what a bargain!
