CCIE Commissioner Nominations
CCIE is seeking a pool from which new Commissioners may be selected. For more information on nominating yourself or someone else, please contact Sherry Shaw, Chair of the Nominating Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Overview of the Commissioner Role
CCIE is dedicated to serving the needs of persons who are D/deaf and hard-of-hearing through accreditation and peer-review of interpreter education programs.
CCIE promotes the professional competence of interpreters through fostering a comprehensive Self-Study Review process, measuring those efforts against a set of Academic and Organizational Standards, and conducting an on-site peer review of the applicant program. The highest achievement an applicant program may receive is Full Accreditation from CCIE.
Commissioners play a critical role in this process. Commissioners are required to:
- Attend monthly conference calls (2 hours in length)
- Attend an annual day-long virtual meeting
- Participate on at least one standing committee of CCIE
- Participate in at least one Self-Study Rating & on-site visit every two (2) years (dependent on application volume)
- Actively promote accreditation
- Adhere to all policies and procedures set forth by CCIE
CCIE will strive for diversity with a focus on D/deaf people and people of color.
The CCIE will strive to maintain a composition of respected experts such as, but not limited to:
- Interpreter educator
- ASL faculty
- Public member (e.g. accreditation, legal, financial, or academic administration expert)
- Interpreter practitioner
- Interpreter education program administrator
Expected Time Commitment
On average, a Commissioner may spend approximately 8-10 hours a month doing the work of CCIE. During the review process of a Self-Study this workload may increase to 15-20 hours per month. The term is three years and may be renewed.
