An Achievement Worth Celebrating
Obtaining CQL Accreditation is not easy. It requires an immense amount of work, energy, and resources to go through a process that has such far-reaching effects on your organization. Human service providers should be proud of their CQL Accreditation and share this accomplishment with others.
Why is promoting accreditation important?
CQL Accreditation sends a clear message that you have an unwavering commitment to ensuring the people you support receive the very best services. It tells those receiving services, families, staff, board members, donors, and the community as a whole, that you’re investing in innovation, promoting transformation, and embracing best practices. Whether you’re launching a fundraising campaign, applying for a grant, or recruiting new employees, you can use your CQL Accreditation to advance your organizational objectives. This is a unique opportunity to make your agency stand out among other human services organizations.
How can you highlight your accreditation?
There are a seemingly endless number of ways you can communicate your achievement of CQL Accreditation with various audiences. From incorporating the accreditation logo on your marketing materials, to showcasing your achievement in donation drives, distributing press releases to media contacts, including your accreditation status on job postings, or letting families know that you care about each person’s individual hopes and dreams – your organization can utilize promotional kit materials produced by CQL to meet your goals. The accreditation promotional kits offer all the resources you need and ideas for how you can use them.
"By attaining CQL Accreditation, Independent Opportunities, Inc. has further aligned itself to be recognized as a preferred provider among MCOs, DIDD, and individuals seeking services."

Of course, CQL hopes that you are just as excited as we are about your organization’s accreditation and are eager to share with your community and stakeholders! However, there are no expectations regarding the use of the promo kit materials. You do not have the share or post anything if you do not want to, or if your organization doesn’t have any social media accounts. Use what is applicable to your organization.
However, if you are sharing your achievement we do prefer that you use the materials and graphics that we provided if they are applicable.
You are welcome to contact Maddie Robin, CQL’s Communications Specialist, for assistance with additional marketing materials. She will also be able to provide guidance if CQL can produce the requested materials, or if you would need to create them yourself.
Please note: You are allowed to incorporate the logo into graphics that you create on your own, as long as you are following our provided Logo Usage Guide.
