Does ABCHS verify the credentials of members?
Yes, the credential verification process is as follows:
Applicants for general membership in ABCHS must provide documentation of their degrees, licenses, and qualifications. These applicants must also provide their signature confirming that the information they provide to ABCHS in their applications is complete, accurate, and up-to-date. These general membership applications are reviewed when they are received. In this review process, an applicant's degrees are confirmed for legitimacy whenever possible and his or her professional licenses are confirmed with that individual's particular state licensing board.
Will ABCHS sell or share my personal information with third parties?
No. The privacy of our members is extremely important to us. All of the personal information sent to us is kept confidential.
I need to verify membership and information on one of your members. How can I get this information?
