WASHINGTON The head of an organization that accredits pharmacy technicians will serve as president of an international credentialing organization next year.
The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board announced Thursday that executive director and CEO Melissa Murer Corrigan would serve as the 2011 president of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence and be installed at the ICE Annual Education Conference in Atlanta, which also took place Thursday. ICE provides educational, networking and advocacy resources for credentialing organizations.
“ICE’s reputation for excellence and its mission to advance credentialing are essential in today’s economy,” Murer Corrigan said. “Our goal is to elevate the national workforce through professional and occupational certification, new career opportunities, job security and increasing earning potential.”
During her term as ICE’s president, Murer Corrigan will act as an advocate for credentialing organizations and help to address the growing demand for skilled and certified workers across the country, the PTCB said.
