The Executive Directors Committee (EDC)is comprised of state leaders who have the authority to oversee licensing and regulation in the cosmetology and related fields. The EDC meets annually to collaborate and share best practices among their peers. The EDC has developed a Uniform Model Act and a Model Curriculum based on a study of the national standards. The goal is to assist states and partners by providing a sample to utilize as a guideline regarding national standards on key areas. This will be continually updated by the EDC members.
