 CLARB Council Record holders who request that your Council Record be sent to the Kentucky Board do not need to complete the entire application.  The “Experience” page of the application does not need to be completed provided the Council Record contains all experience;  please note “See CLARB Council Record” in that section of the application.  Also, in the “Reference” section, as the Council Record typically includes three LA references, you need only provide two additional references, who are not listed as references in the Council Record.
