Coalitions provide a multi-disciplinary, topic-oriented organizational mechanism with broad geographic representation for continuing education; advocacy; knowledge; standards; and professional development. They enhance channels of communication among members with different professional backgrounds to address common issues in college health and expand membership participation opportunities in the association. Coalitions serve as an information and consultative resource for ACHA members and other communities of interest, and help create informational and educational resources, guidelines, and/or best practices. They are available to advise the Board of Directors on relevant policy issues and plan, solicit, or facilitate programming at ACHA and affiliate annual meetings.
