Where do we begin?

As you apply for Hague accreditation, approval, or renewal, COA has a few recommendations to help you and your staff gain a greater understanding of the importance and benefits of the process.

  • Visit COA’s website at www.coanet.org to gain information and an understanding of the Council on Accreditation.
  • Develop a presentation for your governing or advisory body that describes the requirements and merits of accreditation, approval or renewal, and how it is a valuable component of their fiduciary duty.
  • Educate your staff about the many benefits Hague accreditation, approval, or renewal offers that will support their commitment to quality practice and their dedication to excellence.
  • Discuss the process, the standards, and the commitment that is required to achieve Hague accreditation, approval, or renewal with your stakeholders.
  • Assess your ability to implement and demonstrate substantial compliance with the standards.
  • Let your service recipients know that Hague accreditation and approval affirm your commitment to providing them with the very best services.
