Advocacy and Political Activity
Health care board members work in one of the most complex industries. It is imperative that board members understand the health care landscape and, more importantly, know how to properly govern and lead an organization. A hospital or system trustee must be able to properly advocate on behalf of the hospital and community they serve.
The Trustee Guidebook: Advocacy and Political Activity provides a reference of what trustees are legally able to do as advocates and how to be an effective communicator whether speaking to the community, media or government officials.
This book also features:
· Overview of the legislative process;
· What trustees can and cannot do in the advocacy arena;
· Tips for being an effective advocate; and
· What advocating on behalf of your hospital can do for your organization.
