Elmira, NY – Michael A. Doherty, Ph.D., Executive Director, announces that The Arc of Chemung has been awarded a CQL Re-Accreditation from The Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL).
The Arc of Chemung was first accredited in 2007 and has to be re-accredited every 4 years. “What this means for The Arc of Chemung is that we are being nationally recognized for the work that we do. In order to be re-accredited, we had to meet national quality standards that go way beyond the regulations,” said Dr. Doherty. “We’re proud of all the people in our organization – Board of Directors, Committees, staff, people we support, and their families – who contributed to this effort!”
Since 1969, CQL has set the standard for excellence in providing services for people with disabilities. Inspired by a vision of a world of dignity, opportunity, and community inclusion for all people, CQL is an international leader in the definition, measurement, and improvement of quality of life for people with disabilities.
