 Management Minute

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. – Charles Darwin

Welcome back to our continuing conversation around pre-planning associated with the AMCHP 2015 Strategic Planning process. As mentioned in the last issue of Member Briefs, the pre-planning effort was established to fully engage the AMCHP membership across all levels of the organization.

This issue poses a second key question for you to contemplate about your perception and understanding of the AMCHP mission:

The AMCHP Mission

AMCHP supports state maternal and child health programs and provides national leadership on issues affecting women and children.


For this round of feedback, we invite your thoughts, feedback, and active dialogue as we explore with you the following key question:

Key Member Engagement Question #2:

Is the AMCHP mission still relevant to the work that you do…how have we changed over the past three years? Are we handling different issues, are we operating in a different environment? Has the approach to our work evolved?

This is your chance to provide a unique contribution to AMCHP that represents your distinctive perspective. You are encouraged to respond in any number of ways:

SharePoint.jpgThis week, members will receive an email directing them how to access the NEW Strategic Engagement SharePoint site for more opportunities to be part of the strategic planning conversation.

As a preview to the next Member Briefs in early January, we'll be focusing on how the AMCHP mission speaks to our members and if the mission answers some key questions about ourselves – stay tuned.

Please seize this opportunity to provide authentic and real feedback to guide our organization's future – we will embrace and welcome your inputs!
