Missouri Health Care for All is seeking Board members and community leaders to help us advance our Principle that every Missourian deserves quality, affordable health care.
Please read on for more information and a short application form.
Who We Are
Missouri Health Care for All is a statewide, non-partisan, movement committed to securing access to affordable, high-quality health care choices for all Missourians.
Our work spans several major program areas: Base-building, public education, storybanking, grassroots mobilization, media, coalitions, and policy and lobbying work. This breadth of strategies is allowing MHCFA to play a lead role in defending against federal and state attacks on current health care programs, while continuing to call for improvements in our system.
As of Spring 2017, more than 15,000 individuals from across the state have joined our movement. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization led by a volunteer Board of Directors, a 6 FTE staff, and grassroots leaders working in their local communities.
Wanted: Board Members and Local Leaders
We are seeking leaders who are passionate about expanding access to health care in Missouri. We are working to grow our Board of Directors, as well as grow our grassroots leadership in local communities.
All who are interested are encouraged to apply.
About our Board of Directors
Missouri Health Care for All’s Board of Directors serves as both our organization’s guiding group and our most active leaders. We maintain a “working Board” that both governs and and helps move our work forward. Our goal is to have a statewide board that is truly diverse, with special emphasis on representing different geographic regions, including a rich array of denominations and faith groups and reflecting our state’s diversity in ethnic origin, racial background, party affiliation, and ability. We are a nonpartisan organization and welcome board members of differing political parties who share our belief that all Missourians deserve access to quality, affordable health care.
Expectations of Board Members
The time commitment for board members is approximately 5-10 hours per month.
