Employing interactive discussion and case-study reviews, our presentation team will focus on four critical areas.

Executive Summit

What is the value your credentialing program offers? What really is your business? What markets aren’t your reaching?  ICE’s 2017 Executive Summit will provide an opportunity for leaders of credentialing organizations to discuss the “Right of Way” and define the true business of their organization. Engage in strategic discussions challenging current business practices and learn how to evolve your organization in to one that is responsive to a changing marketplace and able to reach new audiences.

This is designed for certification body leaders who are focused on creating strategy and vision. The intent of this workshop is to create an intimate and high-level program that maximizes your opportunities to apply the expertise of credentialing innovators to the unique challenges your certification organization is facing.
