As you may know, IBPSA Members DOMINATE the PACCC certified professional rolls. Why? It’s because we have the resources you need to prepare for the third-party certification exam, like our species-specific certifications. And, of course, because our IBPSA Members are super-smart and awesome. Exhibit A from social media last week…

Did you know (per Wikipedia): “May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on May 1. It is an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival. It is also a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the celebrations that the day includes.” It’s not a holiday for IBPSA or probably most of you, but how about we all use this excuse to sneak in some cake today?

Have a great week!
