January 11, 2013
The AARC Board of Directors took action on many of the recommendations emanating from the 2015 and Beyond Conferences to give better guidance on transition strategies.

These unintended consequences might include workforce shortages, education options, licensure and credentialing implications, and implementation timelines.
A report now published on the AARC’s website delineates the actions taken by the Board at their most recent meeting. Full discussions and justifications for each action are included in the document. “We believe it’s important for all members to do a careful reading of that report,” said Gaebler.

The full report and all actions taken by the Board are posted.
