Key elements of ARC NW's organizational structure include a community advisory board, a core and affiliate membership, a management group, and local workgroups.
Community Advisory Board
The Health Promotion Research Center's Community Advisory Board is our external sounding board for ARC NW activities.
Core members are individuals from partner organizations who are actively involved in developing program priorities and implementing program activities. List of members.
Affiliate members are individuals from the community or scientific sector who are committed to the ARC NW mission and available to provide expertise, representation, or resources to projects and workgroups.
The management group consists of a subset of core members who manage administrative and process details. They are responsible for making day-to-day decisions (research decisions are made by the entire ARC NW core membership).
Workgroups are convened to focus on specific research topics. The lifespan of each workgroup depends on available resources and community needs.
