CIPS National and CIPS Alberta Renew Joint Commitment to IT Professionalism and Certification in Alberta and Canada
CIPS National and CIPS Alberta are very pleased to announce that under new leadership at the national level, CIPS National and CIPS Alberta have reaffirmed their commitment to CIPS Alberta members and to the general public. This will allow CIPS Alberta to once again streamline the membership renewal process for their members and to reconfirm CIPS’ commitment to IT Professionalism across all of Canada. CIPS National and CIPS Alberta have since renewed their shared services agreement, which means:

  • CIPS Alberta Members will receive invoices for membership or certification renewal from the National organization on behalf of CIPS Alberta.  Please pay those invoices promptly to keep receiving the benefits of membership and certification.

More importantly, the closer collaboration between CIPS National and Alberta will ensure:
  • Representatives in CIPS Alberta and CIPS National will be working together, along with all CIPS provincial organizations across Canada responsible for IT Professionalism, to advance the profession and protect the public.
  • Post-secondary institutions in Alberta, including those members may have attended, will continue to be eligible for accreditation according to national and international standards.
  • Professional certifications will continue to be recognized at a provincial, national, and international level through ongoing cooperation here in Canada and abroad with our partnership agreements across the globe.
