Frank, I agree that this is a reasonable suggestion for HCCA to consider! And also to put out some type of notice or announcement on the HCCA website.
I wholeheartedly agree. I renew by October for my CHC and Just renewed CPHC I January. I fortunately have enough without the CI but there have been years when I counted on the CI to get enough live CEU's. I believe consideration should be given to some type of extension given the circumstances.

I agree. This is a very reasonable request, Frank. I believe the HCCA would respond positively to this request.

Great idea! Yes, this is reasonable, since right now everything is turned upside down for people. HCCA has an opportunity to help by stepping in relieving one burden for some people, let them have one less thing to worry about right now.
Thanks for all you do!
