Association Self-Assessment Nears Completion

In preparation for the YWCA of the Mid-Atlantic Region Council Peer Review, a local team of community members led by Board member and chair, Michelle Collins-Sibley conducted an assessment of our Association. Peer Review provides an opportunity to build capacity of local Associations. The team compared our Association's work and practices to the 45 standards developed by the national movement, which reflect industry and YWCA best practices. The team met weekly to review agency documents, seek clarification, and provide recommendations to strengthen the Association and our work. The team assessment was overwhelmingly positive. Michelle and the staff are working to wrap-up assignments before the onsite Peer Review, which is scheduled for October.
