I have been appointed the Governmental Affairs Council Co-chair for my state. My co-chair and myself have found ourselves at a complete loss regarding our constituent’s legislative goals. We have attempted to seek guidance from the previous GAC leadership and our current president without success. Can you recommend a course of action to help us become focused on our goals and plan a course of action? Thank you!
Hi Lynda, The first thing to do is look at your association’s strategic plan and policies. That should give you the direction you need. If the state does not have a strategic plan, this is the place to start. You need long-term goals with strategies and action plans to lead you there. If you are not sure how to do this, ADHA has many members who can be resources — starting with your District Trustee.
