Chapter Report & Presentation Guidelines

You are here

Report Guidelines

  • Reports should not exceed 50 pages total.  The recommend length is between 25-35 pages. 
  • Appendices should be limited and used only if absolutely necessary as supporting documentation.
  • Reports are to be submitted approximately two weeks before your scheduled presentation (see "Schedule" webpage). 
  • Reports are to be submitted by 4 PM on the due date.
  • Reports are to be submitted as one document in PDF format titled “Organization Name_2020 Accreditation” in the following way:
  • Chapters are encouraged to highlight their year in the report, not to summarize everything that occurred in the past 12 months.
  • Reports should showcase action and results and not focus on future plans.

An extensive guiding rubric has been created that all chapters are encouraged to use.  The rubric covers each metric and rating.  The rubric is not meant as an exhaustive “checklist” but should be used for examples and items to consider when preparing reports and presentations.  Chapters are still encouraged to use organizational values, priorities and requirements in crafting their Accreditation submissions.  To view the rubric, click here

  • Chapters are encouraged to use multi-media (PowerPoint, Prezi, Google slides).
