ICAB Board Members visit MAA!
On July 18
, MAA had the pleasure of sharing our day with two Board members from ICAB, which is the Central Authority of the Philippines. MAA started the Philippines reaccreditation process in early 2019 by submitting required documents including licenses, audits, inspections, information packets, etc. This reaccreditation occurs every three years. On July 18
, two ICAB officials met interviewed our staff, as well as discussed pertinent issues, and answered many of our questions about the Philippines program. We asked a lot of questions, but also gave a lot of feedback and engaged in open and honest dialogue on how we believe the program can grow and help more children! We also had two families join our staff for a delicious and fun luncheon! Overall, it was a very enjoyable day and we learned a lot from our discussions that will hopefully guide us as we continue to grow this program.
