The North Carolina Board of Employee Assistance Professionals
(NCBEAP) met on April 17. At that meeting the Board renewed twenty
one licenses. A number of licenses that were due to be renewed
have been delayed because of changes in the certification schedule
of the EACC. As a result the Board is extending the deadline
for those LEAPs whose licenses expired in May 2001. The postmark
deadline for submission of the renewal application, which must
be accompanied by current CEAP documentation, has been extended
to July 25, 2001. The Board will meet and review the applications
on August 1st. Please call Patrice Alexander, Board Chair, at
252-533-62556 if you have any questions.
The Licensed Employee Assistance Professionals whose licenses
were renewed, effective May 1, 2001, are:
