It’s been posted in several AMCA member newsletters, mentioned both on our website and in various AMCA committee meetings, and even was the subject of a recent webinar, yet many people have no idea what it is. What are we talking about??? DIGITAL BADGES!
AMCA has partnered with Credly (https://info.credly.com/), one of the leading digital badging platforms, to offer online credentials—aka digital badges—to AMCA members and non-members for a variety of accomplishments.
WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH DIGITAL BADGES?
To review some common FAQ’s about digital badges and their professional benefits, check out this page on the AMCA website:
HOW DO I EARN A BADGE?
Badges can be earned for being a member or Chair of an AMCA committee, a Board or Steering Committee member, AMCA President or a volunteer in the AMCA Speaker’s Network. Badges can also be earned for participation in AMCA’s educational programs, whether attending live webinars or completing courses on the AMCA learning platform. Benchmarks for earning educational badges are as follows:

WHAT DO I DO WITH MY BADGE?
Digital badges can be posted on your professional and personal social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. You can add badges to your email signature, forward and/or share them with coworkers and managers, embed them in a website or attach them to your resume.
Many badges have already been issued to AMCA committee members and educational-based badges are being issued very soon, and all will continue on an ongoing basis. Do not miss out on this opportunity to showcase your accomplishments!
