Q | feat ure | R All Skin Care Educators NOW IS THE TIME FOR ASSOCIATED SKIN CARE PROFESSIONALS (ASCP) TO BRING SKIN CARE SCHOOL OWNERS UP TO DATE ON THE ACTIVITIES OF THE ASCP SKIN CARE SCHOOLS COUNCIL AND URGE SCHOOLS TO GET INVOLVED. The council voted last July to develop a joint effort with the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) to raise the profile of skin care schools. The council met a second time with both founding and new school participants at the AACS annual conference in November. The main session was attended by approximately 35 skin care school owners and educators, and that presence, combined with skin care exhibitors on the trade show floor, brought new prominence to skin care education. Several participants rated every aspect of the program “excellent” on evaluation sheets afterward. “I definitely think the council will be a great new addition,” Brenda Scharman, Salt Lake City, said. “The skin care profession has had more growth and awareness the last few years than anybody could have imagined.” Other forms praised the “great program” and “lots of good information.” By joining this effort, skin care school owners can expand their ability to network, share ideas, gain a voice in state and federal legislation, and work with others dedicated to elevating the skin care profession. ASCP also has developed a Webinar that educators can view to familiarize themselves with the benefits of participation. To learn more, visit and click on “Resources for Skin Care Educators,” then “ASCP Skin Care Schools Council.” ASCP brought skin care educators together in 2009 to help found the Skin Care Schools Council and continues to provide organizational and administrative assistance, as well as coordinating communication.
