We Need You to Get Involved!!
As a member of the PHPS Alumni Association,
you have the opportunity to contribute to our efforts by joining one of
the PHPSAA committees. Current committees are described below. The
PHPS Alumni Association can accomplish so much more with the help of its
PHPSAA Committee Descriptions:
Mentoring & Training Committee
This committee works closely with both the
PHPSAA and the PHPS Liaison Committee to administer the PHPS Mentoring
Program. This program matches PHPS alumni with current specialists.
Committee members help recruit alumni to be mentors and assist with
other aspects of monitoring and evaluating the Mentoring Program.
Communications & Networking Committee
This committee works to improve
communications among alumni and current Prevention Specialists. The
committee plans to create an alumni directory, maintain an interactive PHPSAA website, and enhance the current PHPSAA newsletter. In addition,
the committee will explore the option of including an alumni news column
in the PHPS Perspectives newsletter.
Recruitment & Membership Committee
This committee will work to create a
systematic process for recruiting and retaining alumni members to PHPSAA.
Committee members will focus on increasing membership, enhancing the
benefits of membership, and improving methods for communicating these
benefits to all PHPS Specialists. The Committee will also explore ways
to better market the PHPSAA to alumni and current specialists.
Social Activities Committee
The Social Activities Committee plans and
coordinates social events in conjunction with official PHPS and/or major
public health activities (e.g. PHPS annual conference, APHA annual
meeting). The Committee has established
criteria and guidelines for
events that are eligible for PHPSAA sponsorship and financial support.
