Associate Membership

To be eligible for an associate membership an agency or individual must be approved by their county's designated full member. Each associate membership provides the appointed human services administrator or contact person the opportunity to receive PACHSA information on a variety of human services administration, fiscal, legislative, policy and program topics. Associate members may participate in some discussions but are not eligible to vote or hold a leadership position.​
