Professional Licensing

Like it or not, if you work as a professional in North Carolina, you may be required to be properly licensed in order to practice your chosen profession.  With that license comes responsibilities and laws that must be obeyed in order for you to keep your license.  If a law is broken, the licensing board of your chosen profession will conduct an investigation and issue you a notification that you are believed to be in violation of a law concerning your license.  Does that mean you have no voice?  Of course not.
