Digital Badge for a Member in good standing            Digital Badge for a Student Member

Introducing digital member badges

We have teamed up with Credly by Pearson, a digital badging company that collaborates with reputable organizations to offer digital credentials to individuals globally. Our first badge collection is for student members and those in good standing with their dues.

A digital badge will help you tell your professional story in a way that is complete and validated. Our organization’s advocacy work and influence on public policy are only possible thanks to the support of our members. Use your digital member badge as a symbol of your membership and engagement with us.

 

Accept your badge once you receive an email from Credly with next steps. Be sure to check your spam/junk.

Share your badge on LinkedIn, Twitter, email signatures, and more

 

Committee member collection

Our collection of committee digital badges is the perfect way for committee members to showcase their dedication and hard work. Proudly share your significant voluntary efforts with others and stand out as a valuable member of the City Bar team.
