Benefits to You (and Your Employer)

There are many benefits to becoming an Evaluator such as:

  • Developing a set of professional skills that may enhance your career (a resume worthy accomplishment!)
  • WALA public recognition of accomplishment, including a certificate
  • Continued personal learning and professional development
  • Recertification or continuing education credits in some professions
  • Applied knowledge of the "Diamond Accreditation Three Pillars of Care" for performance excellence
  • A vast understanding of how to apply that knowledge in one's own organization
  • Exposure to best practices from other organizations to apply to one's own organization
  • Networking with performance excellence professionals who share a common language
  • Complimentary registration for WALA Accreditation Evaluator Training
  • Experiencing a sense of pride and opportunity to give back to the community; opportunity to directly impact the quality of care that assisted living residents in Wisconsin receive
  • Recognition as a leader in quality improvement in the assisted living industry in Wisconsin
  • Potential to meet new business partners - exposure for your organization to a target audience


In keeping with the grassroots initiative of this program, WALA encourages employers to contribute to the statewide effort of impacting change within the assisted living industry of Wisconsin by supporting their employees to become an Accreditation Evaluator of the Diamond Program on a volunteer basis.

WALA will reimburse cash costs for actual expenses incurred during training sessions and Accreditation Visits. These costs would include gas consumed, hotel costs if overnight stay is necessary, and meal costs. Receipts will be required. If you have questions about compensation, please contact Dennis Yadon, Diamond Program Manager at
