Walter Dunbar Accreditation Achievement Award

The Dunbar award was established in honor of Walter Dunbar, a man who was vital in starting the accreditation process.  The Dunbar Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Commission on Accreditation for Corrections, and is presented annually to a person whose contributions have been superior in support of the accreditation process.  To nominate an individual, a letter of recommendation must be written outlining the attributes of the auditor.   Nominations for this award come from the field and are due to the Director of Standards and Accreditation, Bridget Bayliss-Curren, at acastandards@aca.org by June 1st of each year.
