Mutual Director Certification (MDC) Program - Maintenance


In order to maintain active certified status, individuals who hold the MDC designation must complete four NAMIC maintenance credits every calendar year. These may be completed virtually and/or at events such as NAMIC’s Annual Convention and Directors’ Bootcamp 2.0.

Failure to complete maintenance requirements may result in the revocation of certification.


The MDC Virtual Maintenance Package is the most convenient way to receive your continuing education and includes access to virtual sessions which, once completed, will qualify for your full MDC maintenance credit.
