2017 Call for Nominations for the Board of Directors


Now more than ever, the National Health Care for the Homeless Council’s work to support and inspire providers, consumers, and advocates in homeless health care is critical. Striving to improve care for people without homes and eliminate homelessness, the Council provides vital technical assistance and education, informative research including adapted clinical guidelines, and crucial advocacy for our field and advances such as medical respite care. Our success depends on a strong, engaged, dynamic, informed, and inclusive Board of Directors for 2017-2018.

And that’s where you come in! Please help us identify outstanding leaders so that the Council may continue to grow and prosper in its work: nominate individuals to serve as Board members and guide our direction during this critical time.

The Annual Meeting of the Governing Membership of the NHCHC will take place at 5:30-7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 21, 2017, at the Grand Hyatt Washington in Washington, D.C. At this meeting we will elect Board members and officers from your nominations. Any Individual Member or Organizational Member Representative may submit a nomination, and members are encouraged to self-nominate. The Nominating Committee will consider all submissions and prepare a slate for action by the Governing Membership.

Please review the Board diversity guidelines and Charge to the Nominating Committee, information on the nomination process and eligibility, and the Board member job description here.

The call for nominations has now closed. You may contact Krista Myatt with any questions.
