Recruiting Examiners for the 2016 AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program!

Senior and Master Examiner recruitment for the 2016 AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award program has now begun! Senior Examiners review the Silver applications while Master Examiners review the Gold applications for the National Quality Award program.

There are many benefits to serving as an Examiner. Not only is it a great opportunity for personal learning and professional development, but individuals who participate as Examiners have a much better grasp of the criteria and can use that knowledge to improve their organizations and/or submit a National Quality Award application. It is also an excellent networking opportunity; Examiners gain professional contacts throughout the country, and make life-long friendships through the program.

Serving as an Examiner is a serious commitment, both in time and impact to the program. Examiners are required to attend a 2 ½ day in-person training session, before working in teams over a 12-week period to review their assigned applications. Examiners estimate spending 40-60 hours reviewing applications, in addition to required weekly conference calls with their teams. The process culminates with a required in-person review session. AHCA covers the travel expenses associated with all required meetings. 

For more information and to submit an application, please visit the National Quality Award Examiner website.
