The NAACLS Review Committee on Accredited Programs (RCAP) and Program Approval Review Committee (PARC) met on July 12-14, 2017 at the beautiful and inspirational Hyatt Regency Tamaya in Albuquerque, NM for the annual face-to-face meetings.
The committees meet several times a year, once face-to face, to review accreditation and approval materials, program progress reports, data regarding programs meeting NAACLS’ benchmarks for performance, and other relevant topics. The committees made recommendations that will go before the NAACLS Board of Directors in September.
The meetings were led by Sally Pestana (Chair) and Brenna Ildza (Vice Chair) for the PARC assisted by Pat Ellinger as the Board Liaison. For the RCAP, DeAnne Maxwell (Chair-Elect) and Cheryl Germain (Vice Chair) provided leadership assisted by Marcia Armstrong as the Board Liaison.
Also participating in both the RCAP and PARC meetings was Yas Simonian, President of the NAACLS Board. The meetings were successful following two days of substantive and thoughtful discussions.
