I am a RA, becoming one using another RA's referral certificate. I did not receive my own RA referal certificate so I called IHG to ask for it. After talking to two supervisors, they told me I am not supposed to have one because I didn't "earn" my RA status by stays, but was just referred. If this is true, when did it change? I know referred RAs used to always get their own referral certificates too.
