The Mandate of the Association
 
To foster public protection by regulating its members’ professional practice through a comprehensive Code of Ethics, competency-based assessment, ongoing evaluation, and clear expectation of compliance with professional Standards of Practice.

The Association's leadership has shown that it will distinguish between the public interest and the professionals’ self-interest and in self-regulating will favor the former.
