August 2018 President's Message from Christina Dokter

Our 26th Annual Conference in Raleigh, NC was a great success.  We had a great turn-out of Board of Health members and public health professionals who shared best practices of the six functions of governance, expanded their network, and learned from each other’s experiences.  It was refreshing to take time out from routine and see each other face-to-face, exchange ideas, and smiles.

The preconference, which was entitled “Governance 101” was well attended and both new and seasoned board members learned that small sized boards (such as boards of health) have differing Robert’s rules than larger boards.

Many contributed to the success of the conference, especially Julie Lederhaus, our NALBOH Education Director.  The NALBOH Board again thanks the conference planning committee, and the City of Raleigh for hosting the conference and welcoming us to a great conference venue.   We also thank our keynotes from NACCHO, ASTHO, and North Carolina for their gracious partnerships with us.  Last but not least, our conference would not have taken place without the support of our sponsors and exhibitors.  We especially would like to acknowledge the Kresge Foundation, our Platinum Sponsor, and the Network for Public Health Law, our Silver Sponsor.

We look forward to our next annual conference, which will be in Denver, CO, August 14-16. Save the date now!
