The Council on Accreditation (COA) is an international, independent, nonprofit, human service accrediting organization. COA accredits or is in the process of accrediting more than 1,800 public and private organizations serving more than seven million individuals and families internationally. COA currently accredits over 45 different service areas that apply to over 125 types of programs.
The COA community is deeply committed to promoting best practice standards, championing quality, and advocating for accreditation. With the support of over 30 national and international organizations, a cadre of 500 volunteers, and a highly skilled and dedicated board of trustees and passionate staff numbering 60, COA pursues its mission with vigor.
COA recently developed a 2020 Strategic Plan with five key goals: a differentiated, high impact value proposition; an increase in the number of accredited organizations; greater impact on beneficiary outcomes; financial sustainability; and a positive impact on the human services field through knowledge sharing. The President/CEO will be charged with the overall leadership of COA to support programmatic outcomes for individuals and families. S/he will increase revenue and market share and translate the organization’s ambitious 2020 Strategic Plan into action.

With a current operating budget of over $15M, ~110 staff, and six chapters, our organization has experienced rapid growth and is well positioned for deepened impact through the implementation of our next five-year strategic plan.
