Let's say you were certified and worked in state A for 15 years. You move to state B and become certified. It looks like you will not be returning to state A and will not renew in the next cycle. If you go ahead and turn in your license from state A now (with no former sanctions and no pending complaints) have you effectively made yourself complaint proof. If a state board can only discipline licensees would state A have any recourse against you if a complaint were to be filed? Let's assume you will still meet the USPAP record retention requirements.
