The Smart Campaign Seeks Endorser Feedback on the Certification Program Proposal!

> Posted by Charlotte Connors
The Smart Campaign Certification Task Force needs the help of all Campaign endorsers!
The comment period on the Client Protection Certification Program  has been extended through the end of February 2012, as it is crucial to include the voice of endorsers in the development of this program.  The full proposal has also been translated into French and Spanish in order to receive feedback from diverse stakeholder groups.  With this input, the task force hopes to confirm the assumptions, refine the process, and pilot test the proposed adequate standards for client protection.

We are seeking the feedback of Campaign endorsers at this point. But we encourage everyone to read and think about the Certification Program proposal. It’s a way of keeping up with the Smart Campaign’s efforts to embed client protection in the industry’s DNA!
