Call for ACHA Liaison Candidates

ACHA's partnerships with other national health and higher education organizations help to enhance resources for the college health field and integrate college health into the national agenda.

ACHA liaisons represent ACHA and the varied interests of college health. Liaisons attend meetings of partner organizations and/or conference calls and consult with relevant ACHA sections and coalitions. They also brief the Executive Committee and Board of Directors on key issues, meeting summaries, organizational outcomes, and pertinent information about the partner organization and how this liaison relationship advances the health of college students.

The association is currently seeking to fill the following vacancies in liaison positions. The ACHA Executive Committee (on behalf of the Board of Directors) will determine the appointees for each position after careful review of all submitted information.
