Compact Commission

What is the Compact Commission?

The Counseling Compact Commission is the interstate administrative body created by the Compact. The Commission is composed of one Delegate from each member state’s licensing board or agency and is tasked with implementing the Compact’s provisions for interstate practice of professional counseling.

When will the Compact be operational?

The Compact Commission will convene for the first time in October of 2022. The Commission will adopt initial bylaws and rules to carry out the Compact. The Commission will also provide for the creation of an interstate licensure data system allowing for rapid verification of practitioners’ good standing and sharing of disciplinary information among member states.

This activation process generally takes up to a year or longer.
