Self-Study Workshop, 2022 Standards and Guidelines

MAERB will be conducting a Self-Study Workshop on October 21, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm at the AAMA 66th Annual Conference (Myrtle Beach, SC).  The Self-Study Workshop is an in-depth educational seminar focused on helping programs prepare for the comprehensive site-survey.  This Self-Study workshop will be based on the 2022 Standards and Guidelines, and it is designed for Program Directors or other institutional representatives who have a site visit in 2024 and beyond.  Because we are limited to 50 participants, we are first inviting Program Directors who are being visited in 2024, and, if the workshop is not full by July 1, 2022, we will open up the registration to program who are being visited in 2025.  Please contact Sarah Marino ( if you have any questions.
