Much of the work and discussion that supports our goals, priorities and activities on behalf of health centers occurs in our committees. Participants in our committees have the opportunity to offer feedback and insights that inform and influence policy and advocacy, hear the latest information, guide and evaluate our activities and truly make a difference. All Organizational Members may serve as a member of a committee. Anyone interested in learning more about a particular committee, serving, or recommending someone else to serve can reach out using the staff links below. Committees generally meet every other month by conference call.
