Renewal information for the State CPE Roster sponsors:

Roster sponsors renew membership annually on their anniversary date of initial roster listing. The renewal application link will be sent via email to your organization’s main contact one month prior to the renewal due date. This email will come from a no-reply@salesforce.com address with the subject line of “CPE State Roster Annual Renewal Information." Some mail client security features may reject this address, so make sure you are able to accept messages from this address.

The renewal application is an online self-certification form with a series of Yes/No questions directly related to your continued compliance with the Standards.  Within the renewal application you are also required to attach a program list for all of the programs that your organization offered CPE credits for during the past renewal period.  If your renewal is not submitted by the first day of the renewal month, your organization will be assessed a 50% late fee that will automatically be included in the fee you pay when you submit the renewal form. The renewal fees can be paid by check or credit card.
