OPHA is considering forming another new section! If you are an Accreditation Coordinator, Quality Improvement Coordinator or someone who is actively working with or caring about Public Health Accreditation – please email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about this exciting new possibility for OPHA… and YOU!
We’ve heard from several of you – about a dozen! To form this section we need at least 25 who share this interest – they can be current members or individuals who would be interested in joining OPHA to be a part of this group. We LOVE getting new members, so if you have and Accreditation colleague who isn’t already involved in OPHA – this might be the time to invite them to join us!
And what’s the benefit of being an OPHA Section? Your voice would be represented on our Governing Council – your section chair/designee would have a vote on all our Public Health issues. By being an OPHA Section, the group would be supported by OPHA staff and resources (not necessarily funding – but things like our newsletter, goto meeting opportunities, conference planning involvement and more. APHA has recently funded OPHA again, for provision of Accreditation Readiness support. You can be a part of this initiative as well as more to come in the future.
