CASP designees in good standing, upon retiring from professional activities, may be granted emeritus status at the discretion of the NACAS Certification Commission. The CASP Emeritus Member/Fellow is a legacy designation which does not require recertification. Emeritus members/fellows may continue to use the CASP designation with the addition of “(emeritus)” after “CASP.”
The CASP Emeritus designation is not to be used in place of CASP recertification.
