ABEMFT Sunset Review

The Alabama Board of Examiners in Marriage and Family Therapy (ABEMFT) successfully completed its Sunset Review by the State Legislature and the Examiners of Public Accounts on Friday, October 23, 2020. Sunset Reviews happen every four years and determines whether a professional board is continued into the future. It is with great pleasure and pride that we announce that ABEMFT has been continued for another four years. The board was commended on taking measures to improve its fiscal management, make licensure easier to obtain, and increase the number of licensees in the state. This continuation ensures the vitality and accessibility of the profession of Marriage and Family Therapy in the state of Alabama.
