The agenda items include educating members about current issues, setting policy priorities at the state and national level, reports from our lobbyist, executive director and various committees.

    Members have the opportunity to network, ask questions and remain up to date on the most relevant issues impacting behavioral health services, consumers and providers. We place a strong emphasis on advocacy at the State and National level.

Member organizations can either be corporations, partnerships, government or quasi-government entities with a mission or purpose consistent with the mission and principles of the Association or meet the following criteria: 1) They have a mission or purpose consistent with the Association's mission and principles, 2) Have elected or appointed officers, 3) Have a defined membership, 4) Meet regularly to accomplish the organization's mission and purpose as evidenced by the meeting minutes

    Membership dues are based on the size of the organization's behavioral health budget, which is comprised of mental health, substance use, criminal justice and child welfare services operated under the governing authority of that organization. The dues year is July 1 to June 30. Any new organization who joins after October 1 will pay a prorated amount.
