A: PACE credits run in 2-year cycles. All Professional Members are on the same PACE 2-year cycle, regardless of when they joined and/or re-newed their membership. For example, the 2018-2019 PACE cycle starts January 1, 2018 and ends December 31, 2019 and only credits earned within that period will be counted for that cycle. Credits earned in excess of the PACE requirement do not roll-over to the next PACE 2-year cycle, except for the AP Beta Test. So, all credits earned during the 2018-2019 PACE cycle will expire on January 1, 2020, at which point the required number of credits must be earned again, starting from zero.
