The Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) is recruiting volunteers to fill several positions on the Health Systems Agency of Northern Virginia (HSANV) Board of Directors. HSANV board members are involved in healthcare decision-making concerning new medical technologies and services, as well as looking at the community context for healthcare services, service supply, quality and equity.
NVRC seeks to appoint the following number of residents from
City of Alexandria (1),
Arlington County (1),
Fairfax County (4), and
Prince William County (1)
to the HSANV Board. Appointees must include a mix of consumers and providers of healthcare.
By definition a healthcare consumer is someone who is broadly representative of the Northern Virginia community, but is not employed in a health profession or part of a household that derives income from employment in healthcare, such as a family including a doctor, nurse, dentist, member of hospital or clinic administration, a healthcare insurer, or the like. Major purchasers of healthcare (e.g. employers, labor organizations) who directly or indirectly provide healthcare for their employees or members are also considered “consumers.”
Candidates who reflect the diversity of Northern Virginia are encouraged to apply. Directors of local health departments, social service departments, agencies on aging, and the Northern Virginia community services boards are also encouraged to apply.
The HSANV meets 10-12 times per year, usually on the second Monday of the month in the evening at NVRC offices in Fairfax. Members are also expected to be involved in committee work and to allot time to read background materials. The initial term on the board is three years, with the possibility of one three-year extension. For further information on the HSANV, see the documents below or
