Contact Information & Communications

Maintain Your Contact Information Diplomates are responsible to maintain up-to-date contact information in the BGC™ roster to ensure that communications are sent to a current address. Once a year, BGC asks that all Diplomates verify their contact information on record (at the time of annual fees payment). Diplomates should do this as often as needed, not necessarily waiting for the annual prompt.
Keep Your Email Address Current BGC communicates with Diplomates on a regular basis, primarily using email. If the Diplomate does not have an email address on file, some, but not all, communications are sent via postal mail. For email, the Diplomate must use an email address that is not blocked or filtered (which can sometimes occur with company, military or academic IT systems). When this occurs, a personal email address may be more effective for ensuring that electronic communications are received by the Diplomate.
Change Communications

Changes that directly impact a Diplomate will be communicated. A chronological list of changes that have occurred during the past 5 years is maintained on the BGC/ABIH web site in case the Diplomate wants to review the change history for their CM cycle.
