NRCPD was established by Signature in 2009 to regulate communication and language professionals. NRCPD is governed by a board which sets policy, spending priorities and strategic direction. The Board derives its authority from the Signature Board of Trustees.

The Board is made up of

  • a lay chair;
  • four lay people; and
  • four Registrants.

Board members are appointed for their skills and experience. They can serve for a maximum of two three year terms. Before it makes decisions, the Board

  • takes advice from Professional Standards Advisors;
  • consults the professional associations ALS, ANP, ASLI, AVSTTR, and VLP; and
  • explores the views of deaf and deafblind people.
