Board of Professional Counselors

Proposed Changes in Regulations

The Board of Professional Counselors proposes to adopt regulation changes in Title 12, Chapter 62 of the Alaska Administrative Code, dealing with examination and continuing education.

Public comment due no later than January 28, 2014, at 4:30 p.m.

The Board of Professional Counselors is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The board consists of four professional counselors and one public member. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice professional counseling in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The board offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas are available from the licensing examiner.
