Our Health Policy Committee

“I’m honored to be a member of the Health Policy Committee. It provides me with an opportunity to regularly meet with my peers from other companies and discuss perspectives and strategies on law and regulatory changes. I also believe it is critically important that we as employers have a strong voice and attempt to influence health care policies being considered on a state and national level. Being a part of that advocacy effort has been rewarding for me personally and for my company.”

Join The Committee

The Alliance Health Policy Committee plays a key role in promoting effective advocacy and positive change at both the state and federal level. Members of the committee see the political process at work, gaining experience and knowledge intended to benefit participants and their companies. The committee meets quarterly, sometimes in conjunction with visits to key members of the legislature and the governor’s administration.

The Alliance accepts nominations for new committee members on an ongoing basis. Nominees must be an employee of a member company of The Alliance. If you are interested in nominating yourself or one of your colleagues, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
