CHAD’s Advocacy Network Team is comprised of health center advocates representing member health centers across North Dakota and South Dakota. Team members meet regularly to discuss policy and legislative issues affecting health centers and opportunities for CHCs to participate in online or in-person trainings and peer-to-peer learning sessions.

CHAD works closely with team members to generate ideas, share best practices, develop messaging, and provide strategies and tools to engage elected officials, community leaders, and stakeholders.

Resources and technical assistance are provided in the following areas:

  • Legislative outreach 
  • Policy research 
  • Stakeholder visit coordination
  • State lobbyist updates/briefings
