Your Vote Matters: Help Us to Help You—Vote Now!
Already this year, NCBTMB has set in motion notable changes. Most recently, we announced our decision to no longer offer licensing examinations to the public as of November 1st, 2014. Decisions like this start and end with our Board of Directors. As we continue to evolve and strengthen ourselves as a volunteer-driven organization—that is led by the profession and for the profession—it is of paramount importance we attract the best contributors with diverse experience to make the best choices for our collaborative future—and that is dependent on you and your vote. Your vote matters!
As we seek to expand our Board of Directors, this year provides a unique opportunity to help select TWO Practitioner Members to further diversify, strengthen, and evolve our Board. As an organization, we serve practitioners through our Board Certification credential (BCTMB), as well as an evolving Approved Provider Program and Assigned School Code program. Simply put, we need you to vote for the best candidates to help us make knowledge-based decisions that advance the standards in our profession through education and certification.
I encourage you to vote and be proud of the Board of Directors that you elect to serve you and our profession better. Over the past year, you will have seen a Board who has progressively become highly engaged in taking up their responsibility to the profession by actively contributing to our future on a daily and weekly basis. Now more than ever, we are heavily focused on building collaborative relationships with our Certificants and stakeholders—a top priority for us as we continue to take hold of our positive and infectious momentum. We need your help to continue this trend. We want our Board to reflect your choice in leadership so that we can grow, thrive and flourish together with the best talent that you elect onto the Board of Directors.
Please do not delay. Vote today!!
