Workgroup Co-Chairs

Each Workgroup has two Co-Chairs, one of which attends Advisory Board meetings and votes as a member of the Advisory Board. Workgroup Co-Chairs are chosen and voted in by the Advisory Board and approved by general membership. Each Co-chair term will be two calendar years, beginning July 1 and ending June 30. Co-Chairs will determine which Co-Chair will represent the Workgroup as a member of the Advisory Board and have the responsibility to ensure that one of the Co-Chairs will attend Advisory Board meetings. Workgroup Co-Chairs set the agenda for and facilitate discussion in monthly Workgroup meetings.

Workgroup Co-Chairs ensure that their Workgroup’s agenda and actions support the Advisory Board’s agenda. Co-Chairs should make assignments to their Workgroup members to keep them involved and to facilitate new ideas. Co-Chairs report updates to the Strategic Plan bi-monthly to the Advisory Board and quarterly to the larger Coalition. Co-Chairs provide a written report to be included in an annual report.

Workforce Development Subgroups

In order to move progress along for training implementation and establishment of certification process, it was determined two subgroups would be formed to address tasks outlined in Action Plan related to these two areas.

IMPLEMENTATION Subgroup: The purpose of this subgroup is to establish Implementation Plan based on approved feasibility recommendations. The WFD Action Plan and UPHA/UDOH MOU are used to guide development.

CERTIFICATION PROCESS Subgroup: The purpose of this subgroup is to make recommendations for the certification process for CHWs completing the CHW Core Skills training, as well as recommendations for a “grandparenting” process and continuing education. The WFD Action plan is used to guide development of recommendations.

The subgroups meet bi-weekly to fulfill purpose (creation of implementation plan/establishment of proposed certification process) and report back to the larger workgroup.
