Returns on Your Investment
Speaking in a unified voice changes policy and drives the political will needed to shift the status quo. As a member organization you will be an integral part of a team that achieves significant legislative wins.
We understand that being a member of an organization should help your bottom line. AHW does that by reducing the time you need to spend on advocacy, expanding your network, and by fighting for shared goals while you focus on your organization’s mission.
Be recognized as a change agent locally, regionally, and nationally. Through your participation in AHW, your organization will be a catalyst for systemic change.
There is always room to grow and learn. As a member, you will have access to programs designed especially for AHW members.
Here at AHW we are vision setting. Below are some plans for the future of our organization.
In addition to membership information, the quarterly newsletter “AHW Exclusives” will provide timely information about news, workshops, events, advocacy issues, and other items of interest.
Articles, surveys, white papers, data, and studies from national, state, and local entities will be available in one location for your quick reference.
Develop education and training programs for the public on healthcare policy, citizen lobbying, existing programs, and what is happening real-time with policy proposals at the state, regional, and national levels.
We know that healthcare and environmental issues are intrinsically interconnected. We will expand to develop policy proposals that encompass both of these incredibly important issues.
Full system reform is going to be achieved by working with other states that are looking to tackle the crises that we all face. AHW aims to be a conduit for those conversations.
