Member Updates

Greetings NHSA Members,
I’ve been on the job less than 90 days as your new President and CEO of the National Human Services Assembly, and it has been a whirlwind getting to know you.

Some highlights include:

  • Audit Committee Meeting
  • NABS Board Meeting (PurchasingPoint® program)
  • Board Meeting of The Assembly
  • Annual Meeting in New York City at Mutual of America's Headquarters
  • Lots of time listening and strategizing with many stakeholders
  • Peer council meetings covering operations, public policy, and group purchasing

These activities are in addition to phenomenal work by the small and mighty National Assembly Team.

CNN Money Feature

With the visibility we receive from this week’s CNN Money feature about my personal story and my passion for the work we do together in human services, I will be laser-beam focused on securing more partners. You’ll see big financial numbers cited in the feature - particularly the $71 million the Assembly directs in the purchasing activity of more than 80 of our member organizations, saving them an estimated $100 million over the 10-year history of the program.

We want to do even more as a partnering organization to support the entire network – from strengthening your fundraising and advocacy, to helping you achieve greater cost-savings, to helping you improve and scale your programs.

What’s Next?

Please stay tuned for updates about specific actions we’ll be taking in the coming months – including outreach to learn more from you about your strategic priorities and how we can help.

It’s been a wonderful start. Thanks to all of you who have reached out and continue to provide great insight in all we do.


Gloria Johnson-Cusack
