ABC in the Modern Age
Taking it Online in 2021 I'm genuinely excited to announce that ABC is now accepting renewal payments ONLINE! Behold... the new Online Services functionality on their website! Many license types are still eligible for renewal waivers. ABC tells us that about half of eligible licensees are NOT taking advantage of this, so let us know if you have questions about it. Check on your waiver eligibility HERE.
