The Alliance for Responsible Professional Licensing (ARPL), of which NASBA and the AICPA are founding members, is a coalition of national associations representing highly complex and technical professions and their state licensing boards. ARPL educates policymakers and the public on the importance of rigorous licensing for engineers, architects, landscape architects, surveyors and CPAs. 

Last month, ARPL hosted a webinar for state partners covering insights and observations from 2023 legislative sessions and new and upcoming advocacy tools such as a digital portal to download ARPL resources, tutorial videos on responsible licensing basics, and opinion research from business owners about the value of responsible licensing. 

As part of the Alliance’s efforts, ARPL has developed research, tools and materials to support the education and advocacy efforts of state lawmakers. State organizations are encouraged to take advantage of these tools, which are available for download, below, and will be updated regularly.
