* Others claiming the CRA may have forfeited their right to the credential due to not maintaining continuing education requirements. Or, they may simply be falsely claiming the credential. Do note that the list will change as new members earn the credential, so it is always a good idea to search again using CDI’s Find a Career Professional database.
