Greetings NHSA Members,

I can’t believe we are already in August, and another month has flown by since I last reached out! Here are some updates, including invitations for your participation in the Fall.

New Officers on the Board of Directors

I am excited to announce a wonderful new slate of Officers you elected to our Board in July. They are: Chair, Jatrice Martel Gaiter from Volunteers of America; Vice Chair, Susan Danish from Association of Junior Leagues International; Secretary, Cynthia Lewin from AARP; and Treasurer, Adolph Falcon from National Alliance of Hispanic Health. Already, we are making great plans.

I would also like to say a special thank you to Joe Haggerty, Chief Operating Officer of United Way Worldwide, for his leadership and guidance as outgoing Chair during the transition period. We are pleased that he will continue to serve on our Executive Committee.

Upcoming Membership Events

Check out our upcoming Peer Learning events. Events are open to all members, but each is crafted for specific organizational roles. For more information about other learning and networking opportunities, contact

Mobilization of Reframing Work

The entire team at the National Assembly is gearing up for the release of the new frame for the Reframing Human Services initiative, and we couldn’t be more excited. Key research is done. Now, we pivot to helping you integrate powerful new ways of discussing your work and forging stronger, more diverse partnerships—whether among funders, service providers, volunteers, or policymakers. Be on the lookout for announcements in the Fall about new online tools, webinars, trainings, and inquiries about how we can do more to support your work. If you have specific questions about Reframing, e-mail the team at

I hope you and your colleagues are able to join us and take advantage of a learning event, policy gathering, or group purchasing offering before the year finishes out!
