“I look forward to working with Jim on this important project,” Executive Director Denise Roosendaal said after Henderson’s selection. “I know the future of this resource is in great hands.”After a rigorous application and selection process involving many competent professionals from across the ICE community, ICE is pleased to announce that James Henderson, Ph.D., has been selected as the editor for the ICE Handbook, 3rd edition. His long-standing reputation in the credentialing field and his collaborative approach to the project stood out as differentiators.

Henderson was an NCCA commissioner for six years, serving as Chair from 1996 through 1998, and provided leadership in two rounds of NCCA Standards revision. He also served as Chair of the ICE Research & Development Committee from 2008 through 2012, leading efforts that resulted in the development of a peer-review process and research publications for ICE members. Henderson has delivered many ICE educational offerings as a conference and webinar presenter and author of ICE Digest articles, and he wrote a chapter in the current and previous ICE Handbook.

“I am pleased to follow in the footsteps of the editors of the first two editions,” Henderson said. “They set a very high standard that I will aspire to for the 3rd edition. It is a great honor to serve the credentialing community, and I look forward to this collaboration with many of the brightest minds in the industry.”

Henderson is currently the Executive Vice President and Chief Psychometrician at Castle Worldwide, Inc., in Morrisville, North Carolina. He received his doctorate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The ICE Handbook is considered the preeminent resource for credentialing concepts. This next edition will include updates on a variety of topics as well as emerging ideas for credentialing. Information about submitting applications to write chapters will be available later this spring.

The ICE Handbook, 3rd edition is expected to be published in late 2019.
