Associations Launch Coalition To Support Professional Licensing
ARPL aims to speak up in state legislative battles over credentialing
Associations have kept close watch for political challenges against professional licensing practices at the state level—which at times have even come up for discussion in Washington.

“We aim to educate policymakers and the public on the importance of high standards, rigorous education, and extensive experience within highly complex, technical professions that are relied upon to protect public safety and enhance public trust,” ARPL says on its website. “We also look to offer best practices and solutions drawn from our experience to serve as models that work for the public and members of a given profession.”
