BOC Pres. & CEO Elected as Board Chair of ICE

Zacharias will help lead association that is aimed at advancing accreditation in various industries.

Claudia Zacharias, MBA, CAE, president and CEO of accrediting organization the Board of Certification/Accreditation has assumed the role of Board Chair of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) Board of Directors.

ICE is a professional membership association aimed at advancing credentialing through education, standards, research, and advocacy to ensure proficiency across professions and occupations. The announcement was made at the ICE Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon and a ceremonial gavel was passed to Zacharias as the organization’s newly elected Chair.

Earlier this year, Zacharias was re-elected to the ICE Board of Directors for a second three-year term. She has served as Secretary-Treasurer for the past two years, and will serve as Board Chair for the first year of the current term.

“I am pleased and proud to take on the role of ICE Board Chair,” Zacharias said. “I have enjoyed my experience on the ICE Board of Directors and I look forward to what ICE will accomplish in 2016.”

The National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), ICE’s accrediting body, evaluates certification programs to ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public through the assessment of professional competency. To date, NCCA has accredited approximately 300 programs from more than 120 organizations. All of BOC’s orthotic and prosthetic certification programs are NCCA-accredited.
