Whereas boards that regulate occupations and professions in California were established to protect the public against unscrupulous, unregulated, and untrained practice, and

Whereas the legislature has enacted a process to either sunset boards, eliminate boards or radically alter boards, and

Whereas this process can change requirements for practice, curriculum, entry-level qualifications, teacher qualifications, and professional standards, and

Whereas educators will lose their voice in their industry or craft regarding requirements for practice, curriculum, entry-level qualifications, teacher qualifications and professional standards,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges strongly urge the legislature to carry out its review of boards and to fully reinstate all boards that regulate occupations and professions, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges support the continuation of the State Licensing Board of Barbering and Cosmetology, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges support State Licensing Boards for high quality and professionalism, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct the Executive Committee to assume leadership in maintaining the existence of state licensing in the best interest of our students.
