Individuals with technical expertise in the following areas will be sought for vacancies:

Physicians with experience in the fields of behavioral health, substance abuse services and/or integrated care.

  • Human Resources/Talent Management
  • Insurance/Managed Care Background
  • Leadership/Management Experience

Employees or family members of employees or volunteers of provider agencies or vendors contracted with Alliance, or persons with a financial interest or ownership in any such agency or vendor, are not eligible to serve. All appointments to the Alliance Board are made by the respective boards of county commissioners.

The Alliance Board meets monthly. Meetings take place each quarter at one of the community offices; otherwise, meetings occur at the Home office in Morrisville. Board members also participate in two-three subcommittees based on their expertise and interests. Most Board members dedicate between six-10 hours per month to Board activities, and more if they serve on special projects.
