As a collective group, MABP (Michigan Association of Beauty Professionals) and AACS (American Association of Cosmetology Schools) are actively working to protect the scope of practice for licenses regulated under the Michigan Board of Cosmetology. Our action plan not only includes ongoing dialogue and recommendations to the Rules Committee with guidance on the specific language used for the regulation but also pushing legislation to protect the rights of licensed professionals permanently. What can you do? To advocate for regulatory and legislative change, we need your voice and your action! Our unified commitment between our associations and other professional groups requires quality communication and funding. We have already started drafting new legislation with our government affairs group and need your support! Please join our awareness effort by following our progress on social media with #skininthegame and help fund this action plan for the protection of our licensure by joining MABP mibeautypros.org/membership/ (if you are a student, school, Business Owner, Distributor, or licensed professional) and AACS (if you are a school).
