Note: Last year and in many years, only one person has been nominated by the certified and licensed professionals for any given seat on the board. Please consider nominating someone who is eligible (must be certified or licensed and live in North Carolina) or consider running yourself! Individuals who meet eligibility requirements may nominate him/herself to run for a seat on the board. Eleven certified/licensed professionals are chosen by ballot by the certified/licensed professionals with the board.
The nominee will be expected to provide a statement to the Board Office, (to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) to be no more than 50 words on the qualities they would bring to the Board.
New Look for 2012
The NCSAPPB is about to unveil our new website. We hope that you will find its user-friendly and fluid design easy to access all the information you need in regard to substance abuse counseling credentialing in North Carolina.
You will have all the same features you have enjoyed before, including form downloads, credential verification, and supervisor contact list.
It is to the last point though that we will need your help!
If you are a CCS/CSI or LCAS and wish to be listed as an available supervisor on our site then please email email@example.com and let me know in which COUNTY you wish to be listed. Please note that we are no longer doing listings by cities and towns. You will now be placed on a regional (Western, North Central, South Central, and Eastern) for potential supervisees to contact.
