Committees and Councils are vital components of NHPCO and its affiliate organizations, providing leadership, technical service and educational assistance to the members and the public. Serving on an NHPCO Committee or Council allows members to actively participate in the growth and service of the organization.

Those interested in serving on one of our Board Committees or Advisory Councils should click through to the committee or council page of interest, linked below, and review the expectations for participation before submitting an application. NHPCO membership is required for committee or council service.
