The first conference host that we’ve approved is Corporate United, a leading group purchasing organization and a sponsor of the Purchasing Certification Blog. By attending their Synergy conference May 12 – 14, 2009 in Chicago, you will be given a certificate of attendance granting you 12.5 CEH’s, preapproved to count towards the 32 CEH’s required for SPSM® recertification.
We are currently working to add more conference providers to our approved list. Approved conference providers will display on their Web sites a logo like the one below linked back to our Web site where you can verify that the event is approved.

To continually check for new approved conferences, bookmark and visit regularly.

If you’re a technology provider, service provider, or other conference host and you would like us to authorize your conference for the award of CEH’s that will count towards SPSM® Certification, please contact our External Relations Coordinator, Megan Tyrseck, at or 1-412-294-1990.
