The EAGLE Accreditation Commission is comprised of approximately fifteen members that operate on a voluntary basis. Members serve a three-year term with no more than two consecutive terms. They are both concerned for and committed to the continual improvement and expansion of this unique, faith-based accreditation process. The responsibilities of these dedicated Commissioners are to:

  • Develop the EAGLE standards and make adjustments or revisions in accordance to emerging industry trends and accepted best practice standards;
  • Develop and implement assessment and training programs for peer reviewers;
  • Receive requests to participate in the accreditation process, and delegate detailed processing duties to the EAGLE Commission staff;
  • Receive Peer Review Team reports and annual organization operating reports, and then assess and act upon these documents to grant, deny, suspend, defer, remove or continue accreditation status;
  • Continually monitor accredited organizational compliance with EAGLE accreditation principles, goals and self-assessment elements, and;
  • Carry out other administrative, promotional, collaborative, and policy related actions necessary to operate the process.
