Health center board members are invited to participate in NACHC’s virtual Board Member Boot Camp preconference taking place before CHI@Home! Participants must register for Board Member Boot Camp separately Online or via a Registration Form.

Boot Camp Overview

Health centers operate in a changing and increasingly complex health care environment. It is important that health center board members understand the role of the board and their responsibilities as board members. Board Member Boot Camp starts with a review of board roles and responsibilities and provides a deep dive into several areas of responsibility including CEO oversight, various legal responsibilities, quality oversight, and financial oversight. Participants will also gain an understanding of where to access additional resources about health center board roles. A schedule is posted online.

Who Should Attend?

Board Member Boot Camp is designed for new health center board members or health center board members that want a refresher about board roles.

Please note this program does not go into detail about co-applicant board roles or governance structures for public agencies, such as county or city health departments and universities, among others, that may receive grant funding under the Health Center Program. For information on public center governance, please refer to the Public Centers Monograph.
