Member Advisory Council


To bring the voice of our members to decision makers at GHC-SCW, a group of 15 members lend their voices to the Member Advisory Council. Their mission is to improve communications between GHC-SCW and our 80,000 members. The Council works with organizational leaders and staff to evaluate policies, program and practices.
