Make the most of your WHA membership by getting involved!  Getting involved can be as simple as helping out at the event registration table, inviting a friend or a colleague to attend a WHA event, suggesting a newsletter article idea, or asking your organization to become an Annual or Event Sponsor. 

Here are some ways you can get involved with WHA, as well as email addresses you can use to let us know of your interest.

Advisory Board
The Advisory Board is a standing committee of the Board of Directors, which makes recommendations and provides key information on matters relating to the strategic planning of the organization. Examples of matters upon which the Advisory Board consults include:

  • Increasing membership and participation of senior-level women health executives;
  • Enhancing WHA’s public profile; and
  • Enhancing members’ educational opportunities.

Advisory Board members have at least 10 years experience in the healthcare industry and are appointed by the Board of Directors for two-year terms.

If you are interested in joining the Advisory Board, please contact our President at president@whasocal.org.

Communications
The Communications Committee produces the quarterly email, WHA Digest, notices of WHA events, and the Job Line. It also maintains and updates this website and works with the Marketing Committee on materials for new members and sponsors. You can assist the Communications Committee by drafting articles for the Executive Forum, preparing announcements of upcoming activities and events, creating programs and other handouts for our Gala events, and assisting with revisions to the website’s content and structure.
