2014 CoA policy meeting

Important policy issues this year include the proposed Standards of Accreditation.

The Commission on Accreditation (CoA) held its annual policy meeting Feb. 6-9 in Washington, D.C. This meeting was preceded by an orientation day for new members on Feb. 5. For the third consecutive year, commissioners participated in a “calibration” exercise designed to maximize consistency of decisions across reviewers. As is typical of the annual policy meeting, no programs were reviewed. Instead, CoA focused on a number of important policy issues including those related to the proposed Standards of Accreditation (SoA).
