<< The Bylaws require ABC certification for persons eligible for "Active Individual" Membership. They also require ABC accreditation for companies eligible for "Active Company" Membership. >>

I am ABC certified but my facility is not ABC accredited. You statement says

that as an individual I may join the new association, but my facility is

ineligible. Is that correct?

>>Thus, it is possible that a BOC practitioner can belong, however, such

persons will not be

entitled to a vote in the affairs of the Association. In addition, suppliers

may belong through the “Active Supplier” Membership category.>>

>>Regardless of membership category to which they belong, all members will be

required to abide by ABC professional and facility standards, the ABC Canons

of Ethical Conduct and the ABC Scope of Practice guidelines.>>

What are the ABC professional and facility standards for suppliers? Will this

require all supplies to have ABC certified practitioners on staff?

What are the benefits to non-voting membership?
