So you’ve achieved a law and regulations that fulfill your vision. NOW you’re done, right? Wrong. You will need to be ever vigilant to see that no one exempts himself or herself from the law, that no one takes the teeth out of the law and to generally improve the law as time goes by.

To the extent that there is professional representation on the regulatory board with jurisdiction over the regulatory agency, that representation must be used to maximum effect. To the extent that enforcement hinges on licensed providers reporting non-compliers, the profession must take responsibility for policing itself.
