Use of ASHA account numbers to track CE Registry users and information
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and the ASHA Continuing Education Board (CEB) recognize the increased concern for individual privacy and the risk of identity theft to our members. In the past, the Social Security Number (SSN) was routinely requested to help identify and match ASHA members with their records. However, we are eliminating the collection of the SSN except where required by law (e.g., income tax reporting).
In support of this policy, the CE Registry will no longer use the SSN as the identification number for CE Registry accounts. ASHA account numbers will now be used exclusively as a means of identification for our Registry users. (Any individual who is not an ASHA member will be assigned an ASHA account number for interaction with the CE Registry). CE Registry forms that previously used the SSN have been revised to only ask for the ASHA account number. Effective January 1, 2010, CE Participant forms that previously used the SSN will no longer be accepted.
We urge all CE Registry users to carry their account numbers with them to use when completing the CE Registry Participant form. We ask that you fill in the required information, including your ASHA number completely and legibly. If you do not have your ASHA account number while filling out a form, you may call ASHA’s Action Center during normal business hours (M-F, 8:30-5:00pm EST) to obtain your number.
