Effective October 1, 2018, CRM designation holders will not be required to maintain a membership with the GRMI organization. GRMI will issue the CRM credential to individuals that register their CRM with GRMI.
In lieu of ongoing dues, GRMI is reinstating the $100 (USD) one-time CRM designation registration fee that was required before the standardized exams were implemented.
Based on the eligibility requirements, CRM candidates will need to pass the three CRM standardized exams, mail in an official copy of their transcript or grade report to GRMI, and submit a $100 (USD) registration fee to obtain the CRM credential and digital badge.
The existing $130 (USD) CRM standardized exam fee will change to $155 (USD) for RIMS members and $175 (USD) for non-members effective October 1, 2018.
For CRM holders who paid reinstatement fees in 2018 under the 'Reinstatement Offer':
GRMI Members who paid a CRM designation reinstatement fee in 2018 will receive an adjustment refund:
- For those individuals who paid a GRMI reinstatement fee covering both their CRM registration and GRMI back dues, GRMI will issue them a refund for any amounts paid over $150.
- For those individuals who paid a GRMI reinstatement fee covering only their GRMI back dues, GRMI will issue them a refund for any amounts paid over $50
For Lapsed/Unregistered GRMI Members:
- For those individuals who have never registered their CRM or paid GRMI dues, GRMI will charge them a fee of $150 if paid before October 1, 2018, and $100 if paid on or after October 1, 2018.
