The Council of State Governments (CSG) continues to work collaboratively with the Advisory Committee and the Drafting Team to offer a Draft Licensure Compact for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. Members are working hard to ensure the project is successful and represents a diverse group of Audiologists, Speech-Language Pathologists, Board Administrators, Legislators, Board Attorneys, Professional Associations (ASHA and AAA) as well as a member from the Department of Defense. CSG will offer the Draft Licensure Compact for review for the first time at the annual NCSB conference in October 4-6, 2018. The annual conference is being held at the Tyson’s Corner Marriott, Tysons Corner Virginia.
Conference Registration is now open and can be found on the NCSB Website: http://ncsb.info/event-2967753.
Please make plans to attend the conference and provide CSG with feedback on the Draft Compact. For the last two years, NCSB has been presenting information on the multi-year process and the next step is to gather information from you!
Here are some of the key milestones met thus far:
- Traveled twice to the CSG offices on Capitol Hill to brainstorm and keep activities on task and harness the power of the diverse work group.
- Completed more than 30conference calls since last September.
- Completed calls with Physical Therapy Compact as well as Nursing and the Arkansas State Board of Nursing.
- Completed a Draft Licensure Compact for Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology.
Any change can create challenges, but our community of stakeholders have approached this challenge head-on to create solutions/dialogue. As more milestones are reached, presentations are added and resources become available, you will be informed.
