 Management Minute

A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history. Mahatma Gandhi

Happy New Year! This year marks the year when AMCHP officially conducts its long term planning and we welcome you to continue to engage in meaningful dialogue around our future. As our pre-planning efforts continue, many of you have already taken an opportunity to comment via email and SharePoint. Please continue to do so! We want to capture, catch, arrest, grab, snag, draw, attract, gain, win, hold, grip, captivate, engross, absorb, and occupy your interest and attention in AMCHP's future.

This issue poses a third and final 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 #3:​
Does the AMCHP mission answer these key questions?

A. What need do we fill? What niche do we occupy? What problem are we attempting to solve?

B. Whom do we represent? Who are our members/population base?

C. What are our geographic boundaries?

D. How do we service our clients/members/population base?

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:
