You Could Be Our Representative to APHA's Governance Council

Are you a “governance geek”? I am. I really enjoy the mostly behind-the-scenes work of making decisions about policy, bylaws, organizational structure, and strategic planning. If you enjoy that, too, here is an opportunity for you!

As you may know, NHPHA is affiliated with the American Public Health Association (APHA). This has many benefits for NHPHA including a voice in the governance decisions of APHA. Every affiliate has an Affiliate Representative to the Governing Council (ARGC). I currently serve as the interim ARGC so we are looking for someone to take on a 2-year term as our ARGC. Here is what the commitment involves:
  1. Participate in a call every other month with ARGCs from the other New England states. 
  2. Participate in a 2-hour call of the Governing Council in June.
  3. Attend Governing Council sessions during APHA Annual Meeting which take up part of the time, leaving you time to attend scientific sessions as well.
  4. Keep APHA informed of changes and activities of NHPHA; keep NHPHA informed about national work.
If I have piqued your curiosity, I will be happy to provide more detail. In addition, I will be available to give guidance and support to whomever takes on this role for NHPHA.
