COE: COVID-19 ALERT 2 (ADDENDUM April 13, 2020): ACCOMMODATION FOR ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETINGS (March 31, 2020)
COUNCIL COVID-19 ALERT 2 (ADDENDUM April 13, 2020):
ACCOMMODATION FOR ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETINGS
(March 31, 2020)
Temporary accommodations were implemented to assist institutions as they attempt to schedule and conduct advisory committee meetings on March 31, 2020. Further revisions were made to these accommodations on April 13, 2020.
The Commission approved a revision to this accommodation to require that institutions document ONLY ONE occupational advisory committee meeting for each program for compliance with COE Standards from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. Additionally, the one required meeting may be held virtually. This temporary exemption applies only to COE requirements and should not be considered a waiver for programmatic, state and/or federal requirements related to advisory committees.
Institutions applying for new program approval or approval for changes in existing programs must demonstrate involvement of advisory committees. Therefore, additional meetings of advisory committees may be required to fulfill application requirements.
