By-law document - Revised 9 7 2023


Hi. Attached are draft updates to the SMHPC bylaws and vision and mission statement. SAMHSA clarified a requirement so we made a change limiting membership to MA residents. Anyone can attend, only MA residents can be members. We also clarified subcommittees due to recent changes. This has come from an Executive Committee meeting earlier this week. If you wish to provide feedback please do so by September 22, 2023. You can just respond to this email.

Hi. Here’s the link to the survey David mentioned at the beginning of the SMHPC meeting. This is done on a HIPAA compliant platform and all info will be used only in a summary. No names or identifying info will be used in reporting for the Block Grant except for state agency personnel. As David said, it’s very important to show that we have a wide variety of people on the Council. Thanks for completing the survey. Bobbi
