Policy Committees

The New Mexico Health Care Association offers a variety of committee membership opportunities for the long-term care practitioner. We encourage administrators, as well as staff members from all disciplines, to serve on an NMHCA Committee—anyone employed by a NMHCA member facility is eligible to serve on the committee of his or her choice.

Committee membership is one of the best ways to make your voice heard in determining the direction of New Mexico long-term care. When you get involved, you help recommend policies and help us provide resources that give people a real opportunity to improve the quality of life and quality of care of New Mexico’s frail elderly and intellectually disabled populations. Working in groups and as individuals, NM long-term care professionals can AND do make a difference.
