Accreditation Boot Camp

In collaboration with National Children’s Alliance (NCA) and the other regionals, the Midwest Regional Child Advocacy Center (MRCAC) will be hosting Accreditation Boot Camp on July 17-18, 2007 in Chicago.  The training is designed for centers who are either applying for NCA accreditation for the first time, or for those who are applying for re-accreditation, within the next 12 - 18 months. Participants will have an opportunity to learn more about the accreditation process, review standards, get ideas on how to address practices when they don't meet the standard, how to engage your team in the process, and more. If you are interested in attending, please contact Jane Braun.  Scholarships may be available for you to attend.
