September 2020

As we continue to move forward while trying to minimize disruptions, adapt to restrictions and implement programs to meet changing needs, we are more convinced than ever that accreditation is a foundation that will allow any organization to be better equipped to handle challenges now and in the future.

We’ve included information both here and on our website to illustrate the positive ways in which organizations are making significant strides this year. We hope you will find value in these ideas as well.
