Persons seeking certification must submit their application form to the chair of LASBO’s Certification Committee within the deadlines established by the Committee. The Committee, which is appointed by the Board, administers the program and safeguards its credibility. Members serve overlapping 3-year terms.
Applicants may apply for the appropriate designation for which they qualify. Certified appointees may hold only one certificate designation at a time. Using the policies, rules, and regulations adopted by the Board, the Committee reviews each application and the accompanying documentation and recommends either approval or denial to the Board. The Committee may request additional information, as necessary, before making a recommendation. Failure to provide information re-quested by the Committee is grounds for denial.
