All ACHENA Volunteers maintain knowledge of and support ACHENA educational standards, policies and procedures, including working toward recognition by the US Department of Education as an accrediting agency. They commit to the highest standard of integrity, impartiality and cooperation and must possess excellent communication and writing skills.
Become a Commissioner
A diverse board of Commissioners serve to promote ACHENA’s educational standards of excellence in homeopathic education and clinical training. ACHENA working committees also meet online to direct and implement ACHENA’s programmatic policies and duties around accreditation and continuing professional development. To maintain diverse and equitable representation, ACHENA aims to include up to 50% of its board to come from homeopathy schools. Knowledge or expertise in homeopathic education and training is an asset but is not required to serve the board. If interested, view the Commissioner Duties.
Become a Peer Reviewer
Peer Reviewers verify that the mission, assertions, practices and documentation of a school seeking or renewing their accreditation reflects the needs of the students they serve. A Peer Review Team conducts on-site school visits. Where travel is not necessary, they also evaluate On-Site Peer Review Reports to ensure that a school is meeting ACHENA’s accreditation standards and polices. A successful accreditation process depends on well-qualified Peer Reviewer professionals, who must be individually screened and trained by ACHENA. ACHENA must meet the rigorous impartiality and confidentiality standards in the field of accreditation. Peer Reviewers must possess excellent communication skills to execute their duties as a team. If interested, view the Peer Reviewer Duties.
Volunteer positions may include seats on the Standards, CPD, Nominations, and Finance Committees. Volunteer terms-of-service are flexible, but we encourage volunteers to commit to one year, if possible.
