December 2021 Newsletter

In the News This Month

With the holiday season upon us and the new year around the corner, it is both a time to reflect and plan. 2021 has been an eventful and busy year for us here at Courtemanche & Associates.

This year, we were elated when our team was able to resume travel to provide regulatory and accreditation onsite support once again to new and existing clients. We expanded our service lines and welcomed many new organizations to the 'C&A' family. Additionally, we launched our newly designed website which we hope you found informative and engaging. We are thankful to each of you for choosing C&A to be a part of your organization's journey and look forward to continuing with our ongoing clients as well as developing new partnerships in the coming months.

In keeping with Courtemanche & Associates' traditions, this month’s newsletter focuses on learning from our past to plan for the future. The feature article includes the team's Top Survey Readiness suggestions for 2022. This resource is a compilation from our team’s observations and national trends and is designed to help you organize your work as we enter the new year. As always please reach out with any questions or service needs you may have. We always enjoy hearing from you.

From all of us at Courtemanche & Associates, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a healthy, safe, and productive New Year.
