UMA President Visits EAGLE Accredited Organizations

EAGLE Marketing Task Force
EAGLE's goal is to recognize organizations that voluntarily go beyond the minimum requirements of licensure to improve operational processes and outcomes. EAGLE challenges organizations not just to compete in challenging human services environments, but to soar above the competition while living their faith values. In early September, the EAGLE Marketing Task Force met to create an EAGLE Marketing Toolkit designed to encourage and help EAGLE Accredited organizations share the news of their EAGLE Accreditation. Please stay tuned to our newsletters, website and our new EAGLE Facebook page for updates.
