Board governance

Requesting Your Assistance with Project About Health Center Board Practices

In recent years, NACHC has created over 50 free governance training tools and resources to serve health center boards. Many of these resources have been developed with input from health centers, PCAs, and NTTAPs. As health centers emerge from the pandemic, it is crucial to understand what’s happening in boardrooms around the country so that we can continue to work with partners to develop relevant training resources for health center boards.

Accordingly, we are launching a new board assessment tool. Questions were developed with an advisory group comprised of PCAs, NTTAP staff, health center CEOs, and board members to help ensure the information we ask for is unique to this project and yields relevant results. This project will:

  • identify practices and emerging trends related to health center governance,
  • result in a summary report that will allow health center boards to reflect on how their practices compare to centers across the country, and
  • help NACHC and its partners develop new resources and training programs that meet health center board needs.

The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) Seeks Input from Health Center Board Members and CEOs: Have you ever wondered how other health center boards recruit board members, how long their board meetings last, or what committees they have? In partnership with an advisory group, NACHC has created an online assessment tool to learn more about health center board practices and needs. This project will:

  • identify practices and emerging trends in health center governance, 
  • result in a report that will be available later this year on the Health Center Resource Clearinghouse that will allow boards to reflect on how their practices compare to centers across the country, and
  • allow NACHC to continue to create timely training tools and resources to serve health center boards building on the over 50 resources already available.

If you are a health center board member or CEO, please participate in this online assessment tool by February 13, 2023; access the tool in English here and in Spanish here. If you are a health center staff member, please consider reminding your CEO of this project. If you have additional questions about the project, click here or contact [email protected].
