AAHomecare Councils

Advisory Councils provide the means through which members with common interests in a homecare sector can influence the Association's programs, advocacy, communications, and education. By participating in AAHomecare’s Advisory Councils, Association members:

  • Shape Association policy on a wide range of issues;
  • Share and promote best practices in the home medical equipment sector;
  • Gain valuable insights as to how industry peers are facing business challenges;
  • Take a leadership role on key legislative and regulatory initiatives; and,
  • Help maintain and improve the quality of care, products, and services provided to the elderly, people with disabilities, caregivers, and individuals dealing with short-term or chronic medical conditions.

Most Councils are open to all AAHomecare members. 

For more information on the Councils, please contact Ashley Plauché, AAHomecare’s Assistant Director of Member & Public Relations, at ashleyp@aahomecare.org.

Meet Our Dedicated Council Leadership

The AAHomecare Advisory Councils are made up of volunteer members who meet throughout the year to set priorities, evaluate progress and establish strategic guidance. The Councils are made up of a diverse cross-section of the homecare industry, including providers, manufacturers and other related companies and are key to the success of our policy initiatives.
