Accreditation Volunteers

ACCREDITATION HANDBOOK—CHAPTER V: OPERATION OF THE CAA, CHAPTER VI. NOMINATING COMMITTEE OF THE CAA, CHAPTER VII: SITE VISITORS


Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.

Volunteers are the backbone of the CAA’s accreditation program, as it depends on the commitment of volunteers to undertake the important work of providing peer review for entry-level graduate education programs in audiology and in speech-language pathology.

Accreditation volunteers fall into three categories—CAA, CAA Nominating Committee, and Site Visitors. Individuals interested in volunteering with the CAA’s accreditation program must apply to be considered for service, which is outlined below and in this comparison document [PDF]. For detailed information about these CAA volunteer opportunities, please review the designated chapter in the Accreditation Handbook [PDF].
