CMIP-NEWS and Updates:

To our CMIP® / CMIS™/ CMIR™  Family:
We need to take this time to re-evaluate things in our lives. We shouldn't get so busy in our careers that we forget what is really important in life...our family, friends, loved ones, and humanity in general. While we are forced to take a step back during this pandemic, and any other adversity that may head our way, let us take deliberate steps forward in building our relationships.
May God be with you and your families.

AEP is here!

During this fast paced season of AEP, let us as CMIR, CMIS, and CMIP® designation holders rise to the occasion before our clients and colleagues, exemplifying the exceptional professionalism that makes us different from other agents out there.

As a CMIR, CMIS, or CMIP®, we are the elite in our industry.

We possess the core "K.E.E." values of Knowledge, Experience, and Ethics that set us apart from other agents. This difference places us at the top of our industry.

In order to maintain our elite status, it is imperative that all of our designation holders bring our core "K.E.E." values to each and every client, during each and every appointment, seminar, or event. Do not compromise! Always be compliant and professional.

May all of our CMIR, CMIS, and CMIP® designation holders have a successful and blessed AEP!

Be safe out there!

Thank you for all that you do!

Experience is often overlooked and disregarded in our society and in most western cultures of today. Not only experience in age, but also experience in the workplace.

Which is better, the more experienced versus the more educated employee? This has long been debated in many corporate boardrooms and HR departments over the decades. How many times have you heard of younger, newly graduated, employees taking the place of older and much more experienced managers or executives? To make matters worse, often the company expects the manager or executive to train their replacement, in a few short weeks or months, before they are replaced!

Experience, though, can never be taught. As any experienced professional in any industry can tell you, there are nuances, scenarios, situations, particular skill sets, etc., pertinent to any industry, that cannot be taught, they are gleaned over the years from experience only.

So, why are there so many very well known and respected professional designation organizations that require from no years to only a couple of years of professional experience to qualify for their designations? Their emphasis is mainly on passing their exams, while charging thousands of dollars. Little emphasis is based on experience.

Who would you pick to perform surgery on yourself or your loved ones... the newly graduated intern that has a couple of surgeries under their belt, or the surgeon that has successfully performed thousands of surgeries over the years?

Our designations require 7 years of experience for our, coveted, CMIP® designation; 5 years of experience for our CMIS™ designation, and 3 years for our CMIR™ designation.

Join Us! Come see how our emphasis on our "K.E.E" fundamentals of Knowledge, Experience, and Ethics, can make an impact on your career and in the confidence that your clients have in you.

To our CMIP, CMIS, and CMIR Family, thank you for your commitment to excellence.

Thank you for all that you do!
