New to IA

I am a web department manager / interactive producer who is looking to transition into information architecture and would like recommendations on certification or other avenues for more education. I have conducted user testing, and provide wire frames and flowcharts to the design team I manage for ecommerce websites. I've been working in interactive for 10 years, but my focus has been more on account management and consulting and I'm soft on design. I would like to expand my UI skills and hope to get an entry level IA position in the Chicago area.

At this point I'm not sure where to start. This is a rather new field. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

[editor: This is an excellent question - How can people get into IA? Comments appreciated!]
