Meaning of “CM Credits Pending”


Often when an event is posted on the APA San Diego website, you will find the term “CM Credits Pending”. This means that APA San Diego has filed a CM credit application with APA national but final approval has not yet been received. We do this as a convenience for our members who appreciate knowing about events well in advance. Please note however that CM credits cannot be reported until after the approval is obtained.
