We have no binding authority over

state or provincial licensing boards since

their authority comes from statute and

regulations specific to their state or province.

We do hold considerable authority as the

national (and sometimes international)standard.

Our members

    available on-line or in notebook format

    Every conference attendee gets a new

    “starter notebook” annually. This is an

    excellent resource/reference guide!
