Seeking Continuing Education Reviewers
The MEAC receives approximately 40-50 continuing education applications per year. We currently have a team of three volunteers who review these applications and we want to expand the team. The applications come in electronic format and follow very specific guidelines. MEAC CEU reviewers receive an electronic copy (email attachment or thumb drive or CD) of the application and a review form to complete; evaluation results are to be sent back to MEAC within 30 days. CEU Reviewers are asked to access approximately 2-3 applications per month. Some of the applications can be evaluated in an hour, while a large conference could take 5 or more hours. Our reviewers are midwives who maintain an active practice, stay abreast with current best practices, and are interested in the quality of midwifery education. Please contact MEAC via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are attracted to becoming a MEAC CEU reviewer or have questions.
Seeking Accreditation Review Committee Members
MEAC is currently expanding our pool of volunteers who serve as peer evaluators. Qualified volunteers are selected from this pool to form the Accreditation Review Committees (ARC) for each school being considered for accreditation or re-accreditation. The ARC is responsible for the detailed review of the applicant’s Self-Evaluation Report (SER) and related documentation. This review generally takes six to eight hours to complete. The ARC also conducts a two-day site visit to verify the information provided in the SER. Travel and lodging expenses related to site visits are paid by MEAC. The ARC then sends a report of their findings to the MEAC Board of Directors, which makes all final decisions regarding accreditation.
ARC members must adhere to the ethics policy of MEAC, which includes revealing any potential conflicts of interest and maintaining confidentiality.
Participating in the accreditation process requires a commitment of time as well as objectivity, accuracy, and attention to detail. When invited to join our pool of volunteers, you will receive training in the application of MEAC Standards for Accreditation and the accreditation process.
