The Accreditation Commission is comprised of a chair, chair-elect, 10 ACPE Certified Educators, 2 members of the public, and 1 practitioner. While the commission makes all final decisions about provisional accreditation, accreditation, notations, commendations, and adverse actions, there are additional persons who support their work in meaningful ways.

Qualified ACPE Certified Educators serve as site team chairs, site team members, and portfolio reviewers. Persons who wish to serve in these roles must undergo an initial training and agree to participate in ongoing training and professional development.
