    I worked at APHSA

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with experts in the field and learn from the state health and human service directors, APHSA membership, which was invaluable. The work I had was amazing.

    Cons

    APHSA has faced tremendous reduction in it's membership and are heavily based on membership dues. The organization has restructured the staff, vision, mission and has downsized. While I was there, many of my colleagues turned over to other companies. They don't have capacity to hire and some affiliates don't have much work.

    I have been working at APHSA

    Pros

    Emerging strategy that focuses on innovative solutions
    Excellent work-life balance policies and culture
    Thoughtful, supportive, and smart co-workers
    Opportunity to serve a cause and work with interesting members and partners

    Cons

    Supervision and management skills are uneven
    The association is often battling with its financial limitations
    A sometimes state-centric, program-centric mindset interferes with the strategy of innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the current path of formulating and implementing strategy, and back it up with a more focused effort on developing the management and supervisory skills of everyone in those roles. Continue to upgrade the staff, as the association went through a period of low performance accountability (this has now changed).
