National Human Services Assembly

Peer Councils

Participate in Peer Councils

The National Human Services Assembly has long hosted peer networks and affinity groups for senior executives of member organizations, organized by professional discipline.  These councils exist to facilitate shared learning across organizations, to highlight new and emerging best practices and research, to enable mutual assistance among peers, and to explore and act on collaborative work where member organizations can have greater impact at a lower cost than they could achieve individually. Councils are chaired or co-chaired by member leaders and are driven by the energy and input of the council members. Councils typically meet once per year face-to-face and often communicate via the National Assembly in the interim to query each other, share advice, and resources.
