 From the Past President

Thank you!!!

What an honor to write this thank you note to all of you as I move into my term as AMCHP Past President. I struggle to find the right words that truly capture my gratitude for the opportunity to have served as your 2013-2015 AMCHP President. It has been my pleasure to work with and for you.

I started out in the 1980s as a state MCH employee and over the years I have seen AMCHP grow and mature into the "GO TO" association for the health and well-being of mothers, children and families. As I look forward to the continued growth of AMCHP under the leadership of President Sam Cooper and President- Elect Eileen Forlenza, I do so knowing that I turn over the reins of an organization that is on an upward trajectory.

For the past two years your board and staff of AMCHP have worked to ensure that:

  • The AMCHP mission and vision are being driven by your guidance and input
  • The AMCHP partnerships are strong and growing
  • AMCHP strives to be relevant to the needs of you – our members
  • The AMCHP finances are solid

AMCHP is constantly in a mode of quality improvement

But our work is not done. I have two asks:

Ask number 1 is that each of you makes sure you are growing and mentoring new leaders at your state level. It is only when we have a smart, engaged, and diverse state membership that we are able to have our AMCHP board representative of the same.

Ask number 2 is that as you transition out of the MCH workplace, you maintain your membership and engagement and become our "ambassador of letters to the editor" on behalf of the nation's mothers, children and families. Your words of wisdom are needed more than ever and I know some of you have a lot you want to share! I look forward to all the adventures yet to come!

With admiration for all you do,

Millie Jones
