This picture shows David Kincheloe and his dog Buddy. David passed away earlier this month after a battle with cancer, still teaching his caregivers better ways to approach care right up to the end. He was a passionate advocate for patients and clients, and served as a founding member of the Governing Body of the North Sound ACH until 2017. David’s family is planning a celebration of his life sometime this Spring, and we hope to post details our website when we learn more. His voice is surely missed.
The North Sound ACH is looking for a new Behavioral Health Provider sector representative to serve on the Board of Directors. Joe Valentine, the CEO for the North Sound BHO, has held this seat since the inception of the North Sound ACH, and we are so grateful for his leadership and voice. As we seek to fill this very important Board seat, we are looking for nominees that:
- Add a voice from an underrepresented community (i.e., communities of color, indigenous, disabilities, LGBTQ+)
- Are younger than age 45
- Have a funds development and/or financial background
The Board has identified these attributes and skills as areas where the Board has gaps in our current membership.
If you are a Behavioral Health provider and are interested in applying, please use the link below to apply. Someone from our Governance Committee will respond with a request for a formal conversation. We will be seeking interested individuals through the middle of January. You can find the application packet at this link (or cut and paste https://bit.ly/2GBnXMQ)
Please share this message with others in the Behavioral Health provider community to help us reach someone who would be an amazing fit for the ACH Board.
Members of the North Sound ACH Board of Directors have staggered terms, so each year they go through a process of filling open seats. Some Board members have their terms renewed, while some seats are filled by new members. People who express interest are considered for the Board, Program Council and other committees. If you are passionate about this region’s work to transform health and are looking for a way to formally get involved, please email us and we will send you some introductory materials!
