2022 Commissioner College 101

Nashville, Tennessee
September 2, 2022

About This Event

ARELLO's Commissioner College is an educational program that is designed to prepare new board/council/commission members for their unique role as regulatory decision-makers and also serves as a valuable refresher course for those with more experience.

Occupational and professional licensing authorities are routinely presented with a broad range of potentially complex issues that can involve quasi-legislative, executive and judicial functions. An understanding of the legal, procedural and practical issues that are related to those distinct functions is critical to effective regulatory decision-making. 

The course is an all-day session and takes place immedaitely following the ARELLO Annual Conference and is offered in 2 parts; 101 being offered in even years and 102 being offered in odd years. It is not necessary to take them in numerical order.

Section 101 covers:

  • Ethical Considerations for Commission or Board Members 
  • Rules of Evidence for Commission or Board Members                 
  • Case Studies
