SES Certification Survey - Please Participate
The SES Certification Committee has started an activity to revise the AStd and CStd certification tests to tie the test questions more closely to the competencies required by standards professionals. A first step in this process is to determine what actual job responsibilities and competencies are associated with standards professionals. The Certification Committee would like to ask your assistance in completing a short survey related to your job and your organization’s use of standards. Please go to http://adobe.ly/1rsWQ5L to complete this survey, which should take no more than 10 to 15 minutes. Your answers can be anonymous if you desire. This survey will close at the end of October. Any questions regarding the survey can be referred to Karl Best, the Certification Committee chair, at email@example.com.
SES and IP-Shield Announce the IP Alliance
SDOs lose revenue via unintentional and sometimes illegal distribution of their standards. While we may never be able to police the infringement from unauthorized sales, we CAN support the SDOs by calling attention to common misuses in the workplace. SES and IP-Shield bring you the IP Alliance, which believes education is the key to stopping copyright infringement. By joining the alliance we provide you with resources including a short video to post on your website to help your users mitigate risk. For more information visit: IP Alliance.
