Internet access and e-mail are integral part of communicating with corporate members and receiving information about opportunities. We strongly encourage you to consider applying for certification once you have consistent access to internet and a viable e-mail address. We would also like for you to consider attending the Pre-Certification Workshop that happens the 3rd Thursday at 11:00 a.m. at our offices. Because the certification application is only online, companies will need a working email address and regular internet access. Companies that benefit most from certification have established business operations and are able to provide goods and services to Fortune 500 companies or their prime suppliers. If the application process or fees are too demanding, CVMSDC strongly suggests that you develop your business and consider applying for certification at a future date.
