The National Guardianship Association is hosting their annual conference at the New Orleans Marriot in New Orleans, LA on October 18 - 21. If you attend all the breakout sessions at the conference on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, you will be awarded 13.50 CEUs. What a great way to earn over half of your NCG or NMG CEUs for your recertification!

Please note: There are conference intensives on Saturday that could earn you an additional 5.75 or 6 CEUs as well. Click here for more information about the NGA Annual Conference.

CGC Adds Requirement for Guardianship Certificants and Applicants

Effective September 1, 2014, CGC is requiring all current NCGs and NMGs, as well as new applicants, to adhere to the revised NGA Standards of Practice. The revised Rules & Regulations are available on the CGC website for review. In addition, a PDF of the NGA Standards of Practice can be viewed here.

All certified guardians will be held to these revised Standards. In particular, disciplinary procedures will now include adherence to the revised NGA Standards of Practice.

If you have any questions regarding this new requirement, please contact the CGC office at 717-238-4689 or via email to We look forward to your cooperation as we implement this new requirement!
