  • Willingness to participate in honest dialogue with professional colleagues and work collaboratively to support the group's decisions.
  • Willingness to participate on a working committee in between meetings
  • Willingness to accept some leadership role during the life of the collaborative.


Any organization or individual concerned about children may request membership, and/or be nominated by a current member.
