Launch of new website and branding

December 16, 2019

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Council on Accreditation (COA) has a new site, and a new look! We hope that you are as excited about them as we are.


We heard that information was sometimes difficult to find on the previous version of our site.  We wanted to update it to make the site work for you! Take a look around to check out some of the cool new tools we’ve got in place. We’re continuing to make updates over the next couple of months, so be sure to come back soon.

Are you part of an in-process organization or volunteer that’s looking for something and can’t find it? Please check your MyCOA or VIP portal. As part of our effort to streamline the content of the site, we have migrated certain modules over there.

In our more than forty-year history we have only had three logos – the most recent being the Council on Accreditation (COA) shield that launched in 2012 which was an adaptation of a 2002 version.  So, we thought with all the excitement surrounding our 2020 Edition standards, coupled with welcoming our new president and CEO, that the time was right to give our branding a refresh.

It was not something that we took lightly, and many, many months of planning and design went into getting it just right.  We wanted to make sure that we were remaining true to our roots but elevating the look and feel to be more fresh, modern, and meaningful.  Learn more about our thought process behind the branding updates on our blog.

Please note that as we go about finalizing these updates, you may still find some documents with our old branding. Pardon our mess! We have a lot of tools for you, and are working on getting them all updated as expeditiously as possible.

Welcome to the new COA![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
