Washington, D.C.—One element of the Alliance’s reinvention of accreditation initiative is a new formal, inclusive and transparent Accreditation Commissioner selection process led by a cross-discipline nominating committee and allowing individuals to self-nominate.
Nominations are now being accepted from museum professionals:

  • with significant senior leadership experience who are champions of the new direction of the accreditation program and want to be part of a change process
  • who are creative thinkers and are willing to be flexible as the Commission redefines how it does its work and the new processes play out
  • committed to advancing museums and the field through the accreditation program and Continuum of Excellence
  • who are extremely accountable and professional
  • who are available to serve from February 2015–2020
