Working Groups

What’s an Annual Meeting “working group”?

NCPH working groups are seminar-like conversations of 8-10 people before and during the annual conference that explore, in-depth, a subject of shared concern.  Working groups have a purpose they are working toward, a problem they are actively trying to solve.  The working group proposal must articulate this as well as an end product(s) that the group seeks to create.

Going Green

Holding any national or international conference raises questions about environmental impact and sustainability, and holding one with a focus on sustainability itself makes those questions even more noticeable! Conversations about this have been going on within NCPH for a number of years, but in many ways, the 2014 conference represents our first concerted effort at addressing them as an organization and a community of practitioners. This page will give you a sense of where we’ve gotten to so far, as well as some ideas about ways to reduce the “carbon footprint” of your own individual conference travel.
