Regional Workgroups and Advisory Council
Counties across North Carolina have formed Regional Workgroups to support their Accreditation efforts. These Workgroups provide an opportunity for Agency Accreditation Coordinators (AACs) and other health department staff to work together on Accreditation efforts by discussing activities, sharing examples of Accreditation strategies and helping each other prepare for site visits. These Workgroups are not managed or organized by the NCLHD Accreditation Program; however, we do keep an updated list of the Workgroups as a resource for AACs. Please reach out to your Regional Workgroup Coordinator to get connected!
Each region has one representative that serves on the AAC Advisory Council, which meets quarterly to review and provide feedback on program content, pilot new tools/initiatives when appropriate, and share information back to their workgroup.
If you have formed a new Workgroup, if the counties that are participating in your Workgroup have changed, or if you have a change in regional roles, please email us.
