    Hi Susan! We’re asking members of our Ethics Standards Committee to participate in one review per month, a minimum of 10/year. The reviews typically take 1.5 hours, and makes the final determination for 1-2 organizations that have gone through the Peer Review stage. The ESC members are provided a thorough report of final designations from Peer Reviewers, that may take appx. 1 hour to review prior to the meetings.
