Call for Volunteers!
Are you looking to get more involved and make a difference? Well, then the Accreditation Council for Genetic Counseling (ACGC) needs you. ACGC is in the market for individuals who are interested in joining one of the following committees. The deadline for applications is May 24, 2019.
- Communications Committee: The communication committee is a standing committee charged with creating an integrated communication strategy for ACGC and for making recommendations on the strategy’s implementation and how resources will be deployed. The committee is also responsible for regularly updating and marketing information about the organization’s activities as well as contributing to industry publications on behalf of the Council. The Committee maintains branding for the association including the website, social media and publications.
- Diversity Task Force: This new task force will provide guidance to ACGC that is grounded in the theory and concepts of intersectionality as applied to genetic counseling regarding: 1) graduate educational initiatives, and 2) the pathway of entry to the profession through graduate school. The taskforce will review what is known about intersectionality in GC and other higher education fields, including a landscape analysis of genetic counseling graduate programs regarding their current efforts/practices and measures of success.
- Standards Committee: These volunteers are responsible for maintaining the Standards for Accreditation, the guidance document for the process of accreditation of graduate programs in our profession. They lead a comprehensive review of all standards every 4 years, as well as responding to emergent needs between comprehensive review cycles.
