In addition, we will introduce you to our most recently-elected Board members and will celebrate the achievements of our peers by recognizing the 2022 recipients of the Lynn C. O’Donnell IH Lifetime Achievement Award, the IH Impact Award, and the James C. Ball EHS Auditing Lifetime Achievement Award.

As in previous years, there will be an opportunity for attendees to engage Board members and staff in open dialog about BGC’s strategic initiatives, which will be followed by a drawing for an annual fee waiver.

Please save the date for the BGC Virtual Forum and Award Presentations, which will take place on Wednesday, November 9, 2022 from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. U.S. Eastern time (16:00 to 17:30 GMT). Space is limited, and registration is free.

2023 Fee Announcement


BGC has made changes to our infrastructure to improve services, make your data more secure, manage your certification, and provide digital badging to promote your achievement as a BGC credential practitioner. We have kept annual fees constant since 2017 in spite of rising operational costs; however, effective with the start date of the 2023 fee payment cycle, the annual renewal fee will increase to $170 for active BGC credential holders ($85 for the EPI designation).

The Board and staff of BGC believe that service improvements and initiatives will bring benefits that will result in BGC credentialed practitioners being even more widely recognized for their role in protecting workers, the public, and the environment. As always, BGC will work with you if you are experiencing financial hardship.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
