The ASPHP is a non-profit corporation governed by a distinguished group of safe patient handling professionals. As a director, the expectations are that you will help to lead the organization in supporting our mission “to improve the safety of caregivers and their patients by advancing the science and practice of safe patient handling.” Our directors are expected to lead by example for our other members and be active and participate in the work on at least one of the committees (Governance, Certification, Marketing, or Education). Each of the committees is also co-chaired by directors. The directors will meet in person in spring at our annual board meeting during ASPHP’s National Education Event, monthly for an hour conference call, and for a half-day half-year meeting in the fall. Please refer to our By-Laws for further information.
