On March 12, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency due to COVID-19, and continued the state of emergency order on May 26, 2020. In this emergency order, Amended Executive Order 51 (EO 51), the Governor directed state agencies to prepare for and mitigate the effects of the outbreak. In doing so, he ordered authorization for the heads of executive branch agencies, on behalf of their regulatory boards as appropriate, and with the concurrence of their Cabinet Secretary, to waive any state requirement or regulation. As a result of this emergency, we currently have several temporary waivers in place. Those waivers impacting the Common Interest Community Board (CIC Board) include:
1. Extending Validity of Expired Licenses, Certificates, and other credentials
2. Waiving Regulatory Restrictions on Online, Distance, and Virtual Learning
This notification is being sent to advise that EO 51 will expire on June 30, 2021, pursuant to § 44-147.17 of the Code of Virginia. With these changes comes the end of the temporary waivers. As a result, the waivers above will expire July 31.
For those who need to renew or reinstate their license or certificate, the required fee can be paid via check made payable to the Treasurer of Virginia or via credit card on the appropriate form. The payment along with a completed renewal application (located at https://www.dpor.virginia.gov/Boards/CIC-Board), and any required additional documentation (i.e., proof of CPE, insurance, etc.) can be mailed to:
9960 Mayland Drive, Suite 400
Richmond, VA 23233-1485
Please note that failure to complete all requirements for renewal or reinstatement of a license or certificate, including submitting the applicable fee and any required additional documentation, on or before July 31, 2021, may result in the requirement to reapply for licensure or certification.
