Steps to renew your DCMGA membership:
1. Be sure that you have the required number of training and service hours.
Members of this year’s Intern class need 54 training hours and 50 service hours in 2020. After the Intern year, members need 12 Continuing Education hours and 12 service hours each year. For CE opportunities, see the Continuing Education Opportunities page. Service and training opportunities are also mentioned each week in the Plan Your Week email.
If it’s near the end of the year and you don’t have the required hours or there are circumstances preventing you from completing your hours, contact Janet Laminack to discuss.
2. Be sure that your hours have been logged in VMS.
If you have questions or password problems with VMS, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. In-person assistance is also usually available at the monthly General Meetings. You may also make an appointment with Janet Laminack for assistance with entering your hours.
While you’re in VMS, review your profile to be sure your contact information is up-to-date.
