Please see the information below from NACCHO CEO Lori Freeman
We are currently soliciting nominations for the NACCHO Board for the Region 1 Director position (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT) due to the recent departure of Board member, Damon Chaplin (formerly of New Bedford, MA). Damon, who is now serving as the health official in Minneapolis, is no longer eligible to represent Region I on the Board. In addition, he has also been elected to a new Officer role, as the Vice President of NACCHO.
The call for nominations will be open from June 15 through July 9, 2023. The goal of the Nominations Committee is to present well-qualified and deeply experienced public health professional candidates that are diverse in every sense of the word and representative of the NACCHO membership. The Committee also encourages nominations from those who have previously not been as actively engaged in NACCHO as well as those representing rural and frontier jurisdictions as well as our tribal sovereign nations. Serving on the Board is a chance to grow personally and professionally, further develop professional skills, gain unique leadership experience, and make lasting connections with a group of other passionate and motivated local public health professionals.
NACCHO has a dedicated staff in Washington, D.C. who make the Board's job as fulfilling as possible. NACCHO staff take care of managing NACCHO’s day-to-day operations, thus enabling the Board to focus on matters of strategic importance for the organization and all local health departments. Board service provides these unique professional and personal development opportunities:
NACCHO hopes you will consider helping to lead your national association into the future and serve your profession by nominating a colleague and/or yourself for the position available.
Attached is a Nominations Form that can be submitted directly to OCEO@naccho.org. Also attached is an outline of Board member expectations and benefits of serving. The call for nominations closes on July 9, 2023.
Thank you in advance for your consideration. If you would like to learn more about the position and serving on the Board, please reach out directly to me and I am happy to have a conversation with you.
