Greetings to all WAIMH Affiliates. This brief update has four main foci: an invitation to share our affiliate newsletters with other AC presidents and their executives; information about the upcoming AC biennial meeting in Prague; information about the Affiliate Council President/executive administrative meeting, Prague, 2016; information about the AC voting survey conducted in 2015.
We are aware that many affiliates write informative and interesting newsletters. While some of the news is relevant to the local group, often times the information would be of interest to other AC Presidents and their executives, for example, feedback with regard to regional conferences and or issues on policy. As such, we encourage you to share your newsletters with the Affiliates Council.
