ACS is heading to Nashville! 

ACS is excited to attend the upcoming I.C.E. Exchange live in Nashville, TN from November 15-18, 2021. We are looking forward to getting together with colleagues to discuss current trends and issues within the credentialing community.

Susan and the I.C.E. R&D Committee kicked off the event with a virtual pre-conference session on October 20th. Susan, along with other committee members, discussed topics, projects, and activities the committee has been pursuing through the year. The virtual session was comprised of two parts: a presentation followed by round table discussions across a wide variety of topics.

Chad will be presenting at the conference in Nashville for two morning sessions on Thursday (11/18). In the first session, “Assessing Competencies and Performance: Where are we in 2021?”, Chad, along with Dr. Alexander Alonso, Ibi Layi-Ojo and Becky LeBuhn, will be discussing the evolution of techniques for evaluating traits and behaviors, how to determine what is right for your program, as well as ways to augment current knowledge-based assessments with competencies. This session is being held from 8:30-9:30 AM CT.

In his second session, “Benefits and Risks of Innovation to the Validity Argument of Credentialing Examinations”, Chad, along with co-presenters Mark Carlos Franco, Esq. and Sarah Carroll, will be examining how to weigh the benefit of innovation against the risk it may pose to the outcome of key projects and the case for validity from the vantage point of law, accreditation and research. This session is being held from 10:00 – 11:00 AM CT and will also be made available to virtual attendees.

We are excited to connect with our friends and colleagues and are looking forward to an exciting conference which promises to be filled with cutting-edge, thought-provoking sessions.
