Law and Ethics Workshop with David Jensen:
"Staying on the BBS' good side"
9am-12pm, Session 2 of 2
You must register for Session 1 Separately
Your license or associate registration should be very valuable to you. Anyone conducting research about you will likely look at the BBS’ website for information about whether your license or registration has ever been disciplined by the BBS. And if so, for what. To avoid such trouble, you must understand the power that the BBS has to discipline your license or registration. Basically, it boils down to doing 25 things to stay on the BBS’ good side. In Part I of this presentation, Attorney David G. Jensen will review 12 of the 25 things, and in Part II, he will review the remaining 13. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to stay on the BBS’ good side!
