Scrutiny procedures for prospective members
Prospective members should send an email via the “Send message” button to identify themselves.
They will then be asked for information about projects which will be the basis of their application for accreditation, together with any supporting documentation.
Arrangements will then be made for a member of the Association to receive the documentation and possibly to visit the instrument(s) in question.
The scrutineer and the scrutinee will then agree a joint statement (or referral back) to the committee.
It may also be appropriate to contact the organbuilder(s) involved in a particular project.
If the application is successful, the new member should prepare a digest of his/her personal and professional details (not more than one side of A4) which may be sent to interested enquirers. Headings covered in this document should include:
Types of project undertaken Qualifications and experience Positions
List of projects undertaken Publications
The test to be applied to assess the suitability of an applicant will be a demonstration of the satisfactory execution, in at least one instrument, of the agreed responsibilities of an AIOA-accredited adviser/consultant, as outined in the section on qualifications.
