<< 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?
