CVH Network Leadership Team

What is the CVH Network Leadership Team?

The CVH Network Leadership Team is a group of state health department staff working in Domain 3, as well as committee and partner liaisons, who

  • Represent state health departments to NACDD, CDC, and other partners,

  • Set the priorities and best methods for providing support to state health departments, such as recommending topics for webinars and Fireside Chats and helping to determine the most suitable means to disseminate information, and

  • Coordinate and integrate activities with other NACDD councils and committees.

The CVH Network Leadership Team provides extensive input and feedback to NACDD on our learning opportunities, the Off the Cuff newsletter, and other health systems/Domain 3 activities.

How Can I Provide Feedback or Suggestions to the Leadership Team?

States are welcome to contact any member of the Leadership Team to convey ideas, ask questions, and share feedback. The Chair and Chair Elect are always appropriate to contact and are well positioned to understand your needs and represent them to the group and to NACDD. You may also reach out directly to the NACDD consultants, MaryCatherine Jones ( and Miriam Patanian ( if you have suggestions about the Leadership Team and how we can improve opportunities for states to collaborate, exchange best practices, and share tools and resources. We would love to hear from you! 

How Are Members Elected to the Leadership Team?

All state health department staff working in an area related to Domain 3 are eligible to be nominated for the Leadership Team during our annual call for nominations. Nominees do not need to work exclusively in Domain 3. New staff and nominees from states not currently represented on the Leadership Team are welcome to submit nominations. All Domain 3 staff are invited and encouraged to vote in the elections, which take place in the fall of each year. A call for nominations for the 2017-2018 Leadership Team will be announced in NACDD's Off the Cuff newsletter in Fall 2017.
