THANK YOU!

Our amazing Standards Visitors were extremely busy in Summer 2016. We cannot thank this amazing group of volunteers enough. Check our list for colleagues and friends and please help us say THANKS!

Standards Courses
Are you being visited this summer? All camps are required to attend a Standards Course, or Standards Update Course. The schedule of courses for the 2016-2017 is NOW available on our Professional Calendar!

Have you ever thought of becoming a Visitor? 
This is your chance! ACA New England’s next visitor course will be held this fall. More details to be posted on the professional calendar. 

Visitors are the heart and soul of the ACA Standards Program. Without Visitors we would have no way to implement ACA Accreditation. Join the team of New England Visitors!

Prerequisite: Participants in the Associate Visitor Course must be at least twenty-one years of age, a current ACA member, and have completed the Standards course.


 Accreditation News
Last fall, there was a great deal of information in regard to several key, operational changes to the ACA Accreditation Program. These changes include a change in the years between Accreditation site visit years and shifting to continual compliance with the standards through the completion of an Annual Accreditation Report in nonvisit years.

In the upcoming weeks, All camps scheduled to have a site visit in 2017 will be contacted with more information in regard to your visit. Most camps will have their site visit as scheduled, while a few randomly selected camps will have their site visit postponed.  

All eligible camps will eventually move to a five-year visit cycle. The implementation will take place in phases. In New England, the implementation process of the new Accreditation Cycle will take three to five years.  Camps scheduled to have their site visit in 2018 will be contacted in in the fall of 2017. Learn more regarding the operational change to ACA Accreditation.
