We are now in getting ready for the CAIB semester. I would like to thank all those that have stepped up to take part in facilitating these courses CAIB 1 to 4. Your commitment and participation is very much appreciated. On that note I would like to suggest to anyone with a CAIB designation and members of the IBAO that if you are looking for a way to give back perhaps you would consider signing on to become a facilitator. It is an extremely rewarding way to give back to the broker community. You also get to meet some wonderful people and perhaps make new friends along the way. We are always looking for new participants. Also a reminder to those of you who may be pondering your career path that becoming a CAIB graduate is a rewarding next step. All the best to all.
