Accreditation Office Hours 2019-2020

Are you considering becoming accredited for the first time? Working on preparing for your upcoming visit? Do you want a refresher to make sure you are meeting the standards? Looking for tips on preparing and applying standards to your program?

Join us for virtual accreditation office hours each month, beginning in October, to help you walk through some of the specifics of your accreditation preparation. Learn about resources available from ACA, dig deeper into each section of standards, share organizing tips, and more. Each session will include an opportunity for open discussion, questions, and coaching from standards instructors and ACA staff. 

Office hours are planned to help you pace your preparation and learning of the standards as you lead up to the camp season. It is not required that you are accredited or seeking accreditation to join these sessions.

Sessions will take place on Zoom. Register for one session, or the entire series. Confirmations and reminders will be sent to the email used for your registration. Recordings of sessions will be available after each session. 

Prerequisite: Actively working on Accreditation for 2020 or beyond, and we suggest you have an Accreditation Process Guide, 2019 edition (APG) to use during these virtual office hours. Completion of an Accreditation Process Workshop prior to participating in virtual office hours is ideal.
