Based on input and guidance from the NACHC/PCA-TTA Advisory Group, a NACHC/PCA-TTA Subgroup on Governance developed a shared governance curriculum on a few key topics including board responsibilities and board composition/recruitment. Interested Primary Care Associations (PCAs) can use this curriculum to train board members at local conferences, via webinars, through direct technical assistance to a particular board, or in other ways in their state or region. The shared curriculum consists of:
1. The Shared Governance Curriculum Training Guide, which includes facilitative tips and sample training agendas (note: this is available in each of the Module folders)
2. Module 1: The Role of Health Center Board and Board Members
3. Module 2: Strategic Board Composition and Recruitment
Trainers can customize and tailor the module content depending on the needs of the audience and/or based on state-specific context and laws. Trainers may also wish to use NACHC’s Governance Guide for Health Center Boards (available at https://www.healthcenterinfo.org/details/?id=2302) as a resource to inform the delivery of this training and/or as a resource for training participants.
