Certification is the highest rank a member can achieve. No one can ever hope to
achieve the rank of Chief Curmudgeon as that rank is held by our
curmudgeonal inspirator, the late W.C. Fields.
Curmudgeon members who are registered and licensed may become Certified
if they meet the following criteria:
There will be an evaluation submittal fee of $5.00. If you are denied
Certification status, you are more than welcome to submit another curmudgeonly event
for consideration. Obviously it will have to be better than the remaining four since you already picked
your best and it was rejected. Most members are approved within 10 submittals.
- must certify that you have been called a Curmudgeon on
at least five separate occasions.
- must submit a description of one of the most Curmudgeonly of the certifying events.
This description will be evaluated and a decision will
be returned within a week of submittal.
A separate fee is required for each submittal (careful... no Curmudgeing allowed
here as a courtesy to those who have to evaluate your submission and yes,
Curmudgeons are courteous when necessary).
Once certified you will receive a new wallet sized card and certificate of membership
attesting to your newly acquired status of "registered, licensed and certified"
member of The Curmudgeon Society. The new card is created for you for no charge.
There is however, a $7.95 charge for postage and handling.
All Curmudgeon certifying events will be displayed on the website for educational
and motivational purposes. We hope to teach other licensed members how to improve their
Curmudgeonly impact by reading the experiences of the certified members.
