“No tricks only treats” when ASMC members enroll in the CDFM program this month. For the month of October, the initial enrollment for the CDFM program will be discounted 50% for ASMC members.

Do you have a colleague that’s worth recognition? Nominate them for our ASMC Achievement Awards. The nomination period is open until January 31st – that’s nothing to “boo” about!

Next month, after the office Halloween candy disappears, we’ll start working on our New Year’s resolutions. Our resolutions will mean big things for our members, so stay tuned to hear about our “RENEW” YEAR’s Resolution kick-off!

Statement from ASMC Regarding Recent Tragedies

ASMC National News - Mon, 2017-10-02 15:09

ASMC is saddened by the horrific massacre in Las Vegas and by the increasing number of violent incidents caused by hate and division in our world.  We grieve for those victims and also for their families and friends.  Our hearts are also with those impacted by recent natural disasters; such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and volcanoes. 

To assist those affected by these tragedies, ASMC has made a charity donation to humanitarian relief on behalf of our membership. Additionally, we encourage each of our 17,000-plus members to perform random acts of kindness, so that in the face of the devastation we see in our world today, they will serve as a source of strength and encouragement.

PDI 2017

Do you need access to CPE/CET credits earned at the 2017 PDI in San Diego? All attendees were emailed an official confirmation letter of all CPEs earned shortly after PDI, however, you can also access a copy of this confirmation letter and printable certificates here. If you are missing your Registration number, which you will need to log in, please contact RHQ at 702-798-8376. 
Virtual PDI 2017   For those who attended PDI 2017, access to Virtual PDI was included in the PDI 2017 registration fee. For those who were unable to attend PDI 2017, Virtual PDI allows individuals to earn CPE/CETs for $99 (approximately $1 per available CPE/CET).   Participation in Virtual PDI allows you to self-certify CPE/CETs for the CDFM Program; however, based upon DoD policy, participation in Virtual PDI does not provide direct credit toward meeting DoD FM Certification Program requirements.   PDI 2018   Looking for even more CPEs? PDI 2018, hosted in Denver, CO, will provide attendees the opportunity to earn over 20 CPEs. The theme for PDI 2018 is “Mountains to Climb: Achieving Peak Performance” and the event will continue to offer the premier training and education that PDI attendees have come to rely upon. Beyond the CPE credits available to attendees, the PDI will provide a valuable forum for participants from HQs, major commands, and installation levels to collaborate with leadership, peers, vendors, and clients. This event will also showcase individuals and teams recognized by ASMC for their excellent contributions to the field of defense financial management.   Registration for PDI 2018 will be open in late February and a dedicated website with the PDI information will be available at that time.   CDFM REFRESHER TRAINING   Looking for opportunities to maintain your CDFM? Check out the CDFM Refresher Course schedule on the ASMC website!
