NCHCFA committees monitor quality developments in long term care and recommend action or positions with short and long-range effects for NCHCFA membership.
Joining a NCHCFA Committee
Not for Profit organizations, especially trade associations, rely heavily on the volunteer time of their membership. One important way to make a difference is by serving on one of NCHCFA’s committees. All committee assignments are for a two-year term. Appointments are made by the Chair of NCHCFA’s Board of Directors. Only representatives from member facilities in good standing are eligible to serve. Committees generally conduct two in-person meetings per year and others as needed by conference call. When submitting your request, please choose more than one committee and rank selections in order of preference. Each committee is limited to 20 people.
The Associate Advisory Committee is comprised of NCHCFA trade associate members. This committee works closely with the NCHCFA Education and Programs Committee to determine social events and networking opportunities at both the Annual Convention & Summer Symposium.
The Council on Provider Relations is concerned with all matters related to maintaining cooperative relationships with regulatory agencies, other professional associations and organizations, universities, and the American Health Care Association. Consideration of pending and enacted legislation, regulation and assisting with the development and implementation of long term health care policy are all a part of the Committee’s work.
The Education and Programs Committee participates in the development of continuing educational programming for NCHCFA members, and assists with the coordination of general membership meetings including the Annual Convention & Expo and Annual Summer Symposium. Committee members also establish criteria and categories for the annual awards and take part in the selection of award recipients for the NCHCFA Annual Awards Program.
The Payment for Services Committee is the NCHCFA membership’s advisory council for all matters pertaining with the payment of services provided in nursing facilities. This committee has scheduled quarterly conference calls and meets in-person as needed.
The Quality Advisory Committee is engaged with all matters related to promoting and encouraging participation in NCHCFA’s Quality Improvement initiatives, leadership, and resident care innovation. The work of this committee promises to be challenging and exciting as we continue to direct NCHCFA member activities that contribute to NCHCFA’s mission to help members deliver a high quality of care and services to North Carolina’s frail, elderly and disabled. The Quality Advisory Committee focuses on tools, and resources that promote the application of effective and evidenced-based practices, and process improvement methods. Members of the Quality Advisory Committee are actively engaged in advancing quality performance in North Carolina.
The Standards and Ethics Committee is concerned with all matters relating to ethics and facility standards. 12 of the committee members will be asked to serve on an Informal Dispute Resolution (IDR) process. You must be a licensed Administrator or an administrative Registered Nurse employed fulltime by a member facility or company to participate in the IDR process.
