    Hello Association Executives,

    In my first three weeks at the National Council, I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet many of you by phone to learn about your policy agendas and needs. I look forward to building future relationships.

    We have heard from several of you that you are serving on Blue Ribbon Commissions tasked with making behavioral healthcare recommendations in your states.

    This is a tremendous opportunity to represent the voice of providers in policy, and we are curious: are any of you serving on Blue Ribbon Commissions on behavioral health, mental health, addiction, or criminal justice reform? Additionally, are any of you serving on legislative or governor's task forces or working groups tackling the same issues?

    Please let us know. We're here to provide support, and we are also here to help strategize how to get you a seat at the table if you are not already there. We can also help connect those of you serving on commissions to one another, if you are interested.

    If we haven't schedule an intro call yet – please reach out, and I'll set one up! I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
