CIPHI Survey

CIPHI National is exploring additional perks for CIPHI members across Canada. In partnership with GoodLife Fitness, we are currently looking at providing reduced membership rates to CIPHI members! CIPHI and GoodLife would like to know if there is any interest in this prospect and to accomplish this we would encourage you to complete this short survey (5 questions).

The survey will be used to gather responses and will be facilitated by CIPHI National. No personal info will be sent to GoodLife or their affiliates. There will be no cost or obligation to CIPHI members. You can only take this survey once and the survey will close on May 12, 2017. Once the survey closes, CIPHI National representatives will review responses to determine interest in pursuing reduced fitness memberships with GoodLife. If you have any questions regarding this survey please contact pres-elect@ciphi.on.ca

We appreciate your input!

Audits of Professional Development Hours

The Council of Professional Experience (CoPE) will begin to conduct audits of Professional Development Hours (PDHs) submitted by CIPHI regular members for 2014. The audits are conducted annually and a percentage of regular members from each Branch are selected using a random selection process.

At this time the Members Service Centre (MSC) site is locked and you will not be able to add any more PDH’s for 2014.

If you are selected for an audit, an email will be sent to you after the audit letting you know if you passed or failed your audit. Explanation of the audit is given and members can see any comments made by the auditor. The audits usually take 3-4 weeks to complete.

A revised version of the CIPHI CPC Professional Development Model can be found under the Library tab of the MSC or at http://www.ciphi.ca/files/documents/cpc/prodev.pdf

If you have any questions or comments with respect to audits, please contact CoPE at cope@ciphi.ca
