CAA Announces New Reporting Requirement for Program Director Changes

The CAA has adopted a new policy that now requires programs to notify the CAA of program director changes as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days after the change, including temporary appointments and sabbaticals.

In order to ensure efficient communications, the CAA requires accredited and candidate programs, and those in applicant status, to provide accurate contact information for the program and the program director.

The program must submit notification in writing on department letterhead to the CAA Accreditation Office indicating the name, title, and contact information of the new program director, along with the effective date of the appointment and whether the appointment is on an interim basis or permanent. The notice also must include the justification for the change. If the position is vacant, written notification should include the plan for filling the position.

Failure to notify the CAA Accreditation Office within the time lines may jeopardize the program's accreditation status.
