Thanks Joan for the support. What we need is another governing board to
compete with ASCP, but I know that I am wearing ruby slippers and walking
with the tin man, scarecrow and lion because I know that it will never

Greetings to all,

Why is it that when the ASCP is mentioned in the subject matter, questions
die quickly on the vine?  Speaking of the ASCP is like talking with the
of Oz; you know, "ignore the man behind the curtain."

The ASCP is the governing body of our livelihood.  How they wield the power
of their monopoly has effects on each and every one of us.  Joe has raised
questions many times about whether they make decisions before contemplating
effects.  I don't think it is a minor oversight that they would place
for certification that defies the geography of available resources.

Previous posts have indicated serious inconsistencies with the certification
process.  There seems to be no verifiable insight into the actual workings
this organization.  I find this lack of transparency and accountability
troubling.  The ASCP must have something more to offer than a trial by fire.
bothers me as well as others that we don't know how they make their
decisions and
now it has gone farther as to why they make these decisions.  I would like
see our profession grow and get the respect it deserves but I think that
would be by helping each and every one of us; allowing all the boats to rise
the tide.
