We are:

  • An affiliate of APHA, the American Public Health Association. This strengthens our ability to link state and national policy and programs.
  • An all-volunteer organization including Board, Program staff, Advocacy staff, Fund raisers, and Administrative staff.
  • Concentrated on public health in northern and central California, but statewide in action.

We operate on a lean $30,000 per year. 100% of our core funding is from individual members.

  • One benefit of this: It strengthens our independence.
  • Governmental public health organizations have had to curtail funding for memberships and meeting registrations
  • This is possible because of the generosity of our partners, who provide housing, communication, and IT support

What does my membership offer?

  • Mission-related Membership benefits:
    • POLICY AND PROGRAM ACTION. Many members tell us they join because it allows them to “wear another health hat” and take action as an individual. As CPHA-N volunteers, they can pursue policy and strategy actions without the constraints of their employment.

What does my membership support?

  • Your membership and gifts allow us to spend more time on program, and less time on fund raising. Recent actions have included:
    • Joining in legal efforts to require public health representation on federal trade agreement negotiations.
