SMEI recently granted their Puerto Rico affiliate the exclusive administrative role for managing the professional certification program registration and renewal process for the island.
Local certification director, Radamés Rosado, CME, principal of The Rada Group, immediately galvanized his committee around capitalizing on the opportunity to "relaunch" the already successful programs in Puerto Rico by partnering with other related associations and deploying a media campaign.
I was a guest of SME Puerto Rico last week during a one-day media tour which involved two live radio interviews and an exclusive interview with El Neuvo Dia, the largest circulation Spanish language daily in Puerto Rico.
I was very impressed with the professionalism of the SME Puerto Rico board of directors and had the opportunity to meet with many of the board members and certification committee at a reception hosted by SME Puerto Rico President José Corujo, CME, partner at C2 Group at the newly renovated association offices in San Juan.
SME Puerto Rico has been offering the CME®and CSE® programs with coaching classes over the past 6 years, and will begin offering the Salesperson – SCPS(tm) program in 2008.
