PLEASE NOTE: After the Board obtains evidence of alleged violations, a licensee is sent a preliminary notice letter of the Board’s intent to institute disciplinary action. The licensee then has an opportunity to show compliance with the law in an informal conference with a Board panel. If the licensee cannot show compliance with the law and desires to dispose of any pending allegations, the licensee may consent to the entry of an Agreed Board Order. It should be noted that while there is agreement on the part of the licensee to the entry of an Agreed Board Order, there is neither admission nor denial of guilt with respect to any matters that have come to the attention of the Board. If a licensee, or the Board, does not agree to terms of the Agreed Board Order, or if the licensee does not wish an informal conference, a disciplinary hearing is scheduled before an Administrative Law Judge from the Office of Administrative Hearings. The Administrative Law Judge, after hearing all evidence in the matter, will make a recommendation to the Board for action to be taken. The Board then makes a decision in the case, which is documented by the entry of a Board Order. On the finding of the existence of grounds for discipline of a licensee, the Board may suspend, revoke, restrict, fine, refuse to issue or renew, probate, reprimand, cancel, or retire a license. Although every effort is made to ensure that the above information is correct, you should submit an open records request through Board’s office here to confirm the accuracy of the listing before making any decision based upon this information.

You do not need to make a reservation or notify the Board of your attendance beforehand.
