National Human Services Assembly

Peer Councils

Participate in Our Peer Learning Councils

The National Human Services Assembly convenes networks of senior leaders from among its members, partners and field experts to facilitate shared learning across organizations; bring emerging best practices, policy, and research to light; and advocate for system-wide changes to advance the human service sector. Councils are chaired or co-chaired by member leaders, and are driven by the energy of the council members. Councils typically meet (currently virtually) four times per year (once per quarter) and often communicate via NHSA in the interim to query each other and share advice and resources.

Plans for active Peer Councils in 2022 include: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI), Human Resources (HR), National Collaboration for Youth (NCY), and Washington Policy Council (WPC).
