Nelson Community Services Centre achieves national accreditation

A key Nelson community organization has met a high national standard of service.

The staff and board of the Nelson Community Services Centre are celebrating their third successful round of a four-year accreditation cycle through the Canadian Standards of the Council on Accreditation.

Accreditation affirms an organization meets the highest national standards of best practice and establishes an organization’s credibility as effective and professionally sound.

It also provides assurance to all of its stakeholders and clients that an organization is delivering needed, high quality services in the community, conducting its operations successfully, and managing its funds effectively.

Accreditation is not an end in and of itself, but rather a process by which an organization can consistently strive for and achieve new levels of excellence. Nelson Community Services will continue to grow and strengthen its operations throughout the next four-year cycle through its performance quality improvement process.

“This is a significant achievement of which we are very proud,” said executive director Rona Park.
