Pocket card mailing

All pocket cards for the 2018-2019 individual license renewal will be mailed by January 31, 2018. Because these are printed as a mass printing, the Board must wait until the majority of regular and late renewals have been received and processed. In the meantime, you may verify a renewed license via the License Lookup function on the Board's website. All expiration dates are updated and any license listed as "Active in Renewal - Paid" is a renewed, active license. All status will change to the regular "Active" status once the pocket cards are mailed.
