President's Message


By Marc Seale

August 2015


I have recently returned from Amsterdam where CLEAR hosted its Fourth International Congress on Professional and Occupational Regulation. It was an honor to welcome 130 professional and occupational regulators from across Europe, North America and Australasia to Amsterdam where we saw first-hand the variety of innovative approaches employed by international colleagues, in our shared mission to protect the public. It is particularly gratifying to serve as CLEAR’s president at this time of international expansion and outreach, and to see the organization recognized for its unique role in promoting regulatory excellence across borders, professions and occupations. PowerPoint presentations from the event are available to CLEAR members and we are beginning preparations for a Fifth International Congress on Professional and Occupational Regulation in Melbourne, Australia in December 2017.

CLEAR is now only a matter of weeks away from its 35th annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts where a conference program overflowing with ideas and innovation has been prepared to improve your regulatory practice. The latest technologies, products and resources will be on show as thirty organizations participate in this year’s Regulatory Expo. Join over 500 international colleagues for thirty-two sessions, one keynote and two pre-conference workshops. CLEAR's conference is packed with educational presentations and opportunities for networking with colleagues from across the regulatory arena. I look forward to welcoming you to Boston and to your participation in our annual conference, taking place September 17-19.

CLEAR’s 2015 election process is well underway with a slate of dedicated candidates ready to provide leadership to the organization in the years ahead. Ballots have been mailed to the membership and must be returned to CLEAR headquarters by Tuesday, September 1. Details about the candidates are available for your review.  I would like to thank each of those standing for election for their willingness to serve the organization and their commitment to CLEAR. Election results will be announced at the annual conference in Boston and then distributed electronically.

CLEAR recently sent membership dues notices to you and your organizations. We appreciate your support which enables us to offer such varied and valuable resources throughout the year. For example, in the months following the conference, CLEAR has scheduled a range of educational opportunities: 

CLEAR provides these resources for the regulatory community by using the expertise and commitment of its volunteer committee membership, which is the life-blood of our organization. If you are a CLEAR member, I invite you to sign up for committee service and continue CLEAR’s practice of providing products, services and offerings developed by regulators, for regulators.

I look forward to seeing you in September in Boston.

Marc Seale
