Instructions for Completing AAC Application for Accreditation of a Professional Association

When completing your Application for Accreditation of a professional association, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Provide only one copy of each document requested. Once a document is completed, it may be referenced by Section and Page numbers throughout the remainder of the Application. Additional copies of such documents are never required in any other portion of the Application.

  2. Send only the required material.

  3. Use page numbers starting with page 1 in each Section of the Application listing both the Section Number and the Page Number. For example, the third page of the second section is II-3.

  4. Send only one copy of each of your publications used to support any portion of the Application. If the same publication is needed for a later Document, insert a blank page with the notation to refer to the earlier Document. For example, if Document 15 is a part of Document 10, simply state on the blank page: "Reference Document 10."

  5. Your Application must be double spaced and follow the same format as our Application Form. Please type the identical verbiage contained in our Application Form including both the letter identifying the information requested and the colon (:), then furnish the information requested.  Or, import our forms into Word and type your responses in Word and then print out an original copy.

  6. Submit only one copy of your completed Application and one original copy of each appended publication.  You may submit your application electronically as an attached file. Email it to attention Processing Center (no spaces in e-mail address).

  7. The accreditation process may take several months depending upon the amount of work both of us need to accomplish to attain full accredited status. In the meantime we will classify your organization as Provisionally Accredited.

  8. When you qualify for full accreditation, you will automatically be listed under that status. Once you start this process your fees are $125.00 per month for as long as you desire to be accredited by the Commission.
