Call for Board Nominations

Do you want to help advance ALPHA’s mission to engage all Alaskans in public health? Service on the Board of Directors or as President-Elect is an excellent opportunity to become a public health leader in the state. 

We especially seek to promote diversity on the Board (geographically, by discipline, by public health interests, and by ethnicity) in order to best represent the membership.  All nominees must be ALPHA members – new members welcome!

Curious about running for the ALPHA Board of Directors but want more information before you decide?

Come learn from current ALPHA Board members about the Board, their experiences, and ask your questions regarding the nomination/application process. This is a 1-hour open discussion on Zoom during the lunchtime hour—come for the whole time, or just drop in when you can. Thanks for your interest, register today!
