As of October 1, 2018, the Board has discontinued mailing renewal notifications via USPS, and has converted to distributing them via electronic mail.  It is a licensee's and applicant's responsibility to ensure the Board has a current email address to prevent missing important information.    
Email addresses are NOT public record and will not be used or shared for other purposes.  To update your preferred email on file, please send your name, license(s) number and email to azbbheinfo@azbbhe.us
