WHAT'S NEW AT THE ASPB

Changes are coming that will certainly affect the governance of the ASPB and therefore the registrants of our professional regulatory organization. The recently introduced Bill 23 Professional Governance Act will bring new regulations and bylaws which touch on registration policies, practice areas and discipline processes. You can read the bill here.
