04/25/2014: "Professional Licensing Board Changes Notice Procedures"
We were recently made aware the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency (PLA) was notifying current licensees of the need to renew their licenses via email. While the PLA is to be congratulated for attempting to save money on postage (they used to mail the reminders), they apparently did not realize many people changed email addresses over the two year license period. End result… some people did not receive the notice and their licenses expired. As of the time of this post, they are allowing people to still renew their licenses, but there is an additional fifty dollar fee. Some people are reporting they received a mailed notice of this policy change, while others are being caught unaware. My advice? Check your license status ASAP and renew if you are expired.
