This meeting featured updates on our Community Action Strategy Teams, our ACH Pilot Project, and Governance Structure. We have slides from these presentations available here.
We were thrilled to share out our updated Strategy Maps for Social Determinants of Health and Population Health. Our Community Action Strategy Teams were meeting all summer to help us understand our community’s perspective on regional health needs, and identify goals, metrics, and strategies for moving the needle. These maps represent a snapshot of the conversations we’ve heard. A huge thank you to all of you who donated some of your summer to these meetings. These maps are very much work in progress, and we intend for them to be living documents that are continuously updated as the work progresses and priorities change.
Another big update was the announcement of our first selected ACH Pilot Project. Starting in October, we will begin design sessions in Ferry County around a Jail Transition pilot to connect folks transitioning out of the Ferry County Jail and their families to stabilizing services.
BHT and ACH Governance
We wrapped up the meeting with a presentation on the ACH and BHT governance structure. If you haven’t already, make sure you take a look at our Governance Policy which explains in-depth the role of our Board, Leadership Council, and Health Champions and how they intersect.
We are currently recruiting for 4 open seats on our Board, and need your help finding the right people to fill those positions. Click here to see our board recruitment packet, which includes more information about the commitment and an application. To apply, you must submit the application, your resume, and a letter of support from a current BHT Board Member or ACH Leadership Council Member, by Friday October 14th at 5pm.
Leadership Council – Community Commitment
We are also working to update and clean up our Leadership Council list. If you can’t quite remember what you signed up for when you joined the Leadership Council, take a minute to read through our recruitment packet. We will be asking all Leadership Council members to renew their Community Commitment to the ACH. Rather than deal with the hassle of asking all of you to print/sign/scan these letters to us, we will be sending out a DocuSign to each Leadership Council Member Organization with a request for contact information of each person who should receive ACH updates. Stay tuned…and as always feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
