Wanted to give an update for anyone wondering what changes are coming. Keep in mind, these changes are still awaiting final approval but I would hope that everything will stay the same.

The rules are still the same, you must earn 120 credits @ a minimum of 20/year within a 3 year timeframe. We are still discussing a time period cut-off (e.g., credits must be entered within 60 days of earning them). The minimum credit rule and any time cut-offs will not go into effect right away.
Any further comments, etc. are more than welcome.
For those of you that will be attending ChicagoCon, I have some great news to share as well - come find me
