    Hi Elizabeth,
    We sent out a request for item writers to our active certificants. We explained the duties and time committee. We also asked for item writing experience. (surprisingly, few had any experience!). We had a committee vet the applicants by geographic location, core credential type, and work practice setting to obtain the diversity reflecting our exam takers. Once that was determined, attending education sessions was required.
