What is CQL?


What is The Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL)? You may have seen the CQL logo at Accord™ branches or on our website. Accord™ is one of three organizations in Minnesota that is accredited by CQL!

CQL is a leader in working with human service organizations and systems to continuously define, measure, and improve quality of life and quality of services for youth, adults, and older adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and psychiatric disabilities.
