Health Policy Committee 

Employers of The Alliance® make up our Health Policy Committee. They play a key role in promoting effective advocacy and positive change at both the state and federal level; at the same time, they see the political process at work, gaining experience and knowledge that benefit their companies. The volunteer committee meets quarterly, sometimes in conjunction with visits to key members of the legislature and the governor’s administration. 


“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.”
