IPHA Membership Coordinator VISTA
The AmeriCorps VISTA member will serve as the IPHA Membership Coordinator. This position will be relied upon as an active member of the IPHA team, which includes the Executive Director, Director of Programs, Business Coordinator, Communications Coordinator, and our Immunization Consultant. The Member will also work with Drake University Engaged Citizen Corps (AmeriCorps) Member, the IPHA Board of Directors and Committee Chairs. The AmeriCorps VISTA member serving in this position will help us engage IPHA members in the activities and growth of the organization. With 500 members across the state of Iowa, and in various stages of their careers, it’s important that the person in this position brings creative ideas and is willing to try new concepts of engagement. This position will liaise with other APHA state affiliates to learn and share membership engagement tips, practices, and even flops. We all learn together, and sometimes that means sharing what we thought was a good idea, but didn’t match our members’ interests. This position will track and report on their work to the Executive Director regularly, and to the IPHA Board of Directors at their November meeting to help set priorities for the 2023 program year.
