What recordkeeping method are you using to stay on track with your license/s renewal, your continuing education and maybe even your professional memberships in AIA, NSPE, ASLA, IIDA among others?  Are you shuffling spreadsheets and file folders?  Do you as a Principal of your firm assume responsibility for credentials management, or do you delegate the task to an executive assistant?  Is there an administrative assistant assigned to your project team?  Or, maybe you rely on your membership benefits within a professional affiliation to record your continuing education on a transcript.  

Typical methods of recordkeeping may have unlimited potential for failure.  Among the many documented examples are, "My basement flooded and all my records were destroyed", "I lost my job and I was forced to leave all my records behind and I have no access to the files", "I didn't receive my renewal postcard because the state licensing board data base failed". 

Tony Whitt, Continuing Education Coordinator at the Texas Board of Architectural Examiners quoted in his column, CE Documentation in the June 2012 biannual Licensing News "A common problem I hear when I fail to get the proper documents is that:  I went to a brown bag lunch and learn and they don't give out certificates.  To be blunt, if you can't provide the proof of attendance, then (from my auditing standpoint) you were not in attendance."

Are you prepared to endure major consequences for failed recordkeeping like fines in access of $20,000 and public exposure on a state licensing board website?
