ORGANIZATIONAL MEMBERSHIP

At its heart, MOCPHE is public health partners that are fully committed to excellence in the field, coming together to create the change necessary to build a stronger public health system.  As such, the membership should reflect the commitment to excellence.

 

There are several core elements for organizations considering alignment and membership with MOCPHE.  Local public health agencies must demonstrate the following:

  • Commitment towards engaging in a collaborative process and building consensus.

  • Commitment towards moving their department and the public health system towards the tenants of Public Health 3.0.

  • Commitment towards building a department that fulfills the Foundational Public Health Services.

  • Commitment towards becoming an accredited agency, with a desire to achieve PHAB accreditation.

  • Commitment towards providing financial support to ensure the sustainability of MOCPHE.

 

Other public health system partners, such as universities and healthcare partners must demonstrate the following:

  • Commitment towards engaging in a collaborative process and building consensus.

  • Commitment towards supporting the public health system to move towards the tenants of Public Health 3.0, Foundational Public Health Services and PHAB or MICH accreditation.

  • Commitment towards providing financial support to ensure the sustainability of MOCPHE.

 

The following levels of membership outline a tiered approach.  MOCPHE’s tiered approach allows for departments to progressively become more committed to the organization, as departments become more aligned with MOCPHE priorities, and as funding allows.  This allows all departments to become engaged with a nominal financial commitment, while still allowing for the greatest level of organizational influence to departments that have demonstrate the commitment to MOCPHE’s values.

MEMBERSHIP DUES

Membership dues are based on both population size and level of interaction with MOCPHE (membership type).  The structure presented in the table below allows for tiered commitment from jurisdiction of all sizes in Missouri.  Exceptions will also be considered when significant, request in-kind support is provided to MOCPHE.  In-kind support would include, but not be limited to: provision facility or equipment support, fiscal and employment support, or technical support.
