NYS Assembly Members Opposing CRC Licensure Bill

NOTE: Assemblymember  Deborah J. Glick (below), is Chair of the Committee on Higher Education which currently houses the NYS CRC Licensure bill.  Please also note, Assemblymember Click states on her website that she will only read correspondence from individuals living in her district.   Please reach out to her if you or your clients live in her district (District 66) with testimonials and client stories explaining the high level of specialized services for the disabled provided by professionally trained CRC’s.

Disabled clients are a highly vulnerable group with many special needs and complex service requirements, that demand the experience of a licensed certified rehabilitation professional.   For example on monster.com – I recently saw a job ad for an open position: “Rehabilitation Counselor”;  Mental Health Facility; education required – Associates Degree, any major.   We must safe guard our profession and prepare for the non-licensed exemptions that are due to run out in NYS in the next 2 years.
