It has come to the Board’s attention that it is taking as much as 3 weeks for materials submitted in support of certification renewals to be forwarded to the Director of Education by the service monitoring the post office box in Delaware.  As a result, we ask that all AACPs begin the renewal process as early as possible.

Additionally, in order to streamline the renewal process and to bring the turnaround time more in line with the AAPI’s acceptable standards, renewal materials should no longer be submitted to the AAPI’s post office box.  Effective December 1, 2016, all materials submitted in support of certification renewal should be remitted directly to Leslie L. Adams, AACP, Director of Education, Fifth Third Bank Legal Department, 38 Fountain Square Plaza, MD 10909F , Cincinnati, OH 45263.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Ms. Adams at [email protected].
