The Surge Management workgroup held its May call on May 22. The call opened with a debrief about each member’s experience this year for workgroup feedback requests. NACCHO asks workgroups to provide their advice and feedback on items when our federal partners need the local perspective. Most feedback was positive; members felt a local perspective was critical to federal partners for national level principles and guidelines. Many expressed a desire for more context for the requests. This information will be submitted to the appropriate NACCHO staff. Next, special guest experts that could provide insights to the group for work plan development were discussed. Finally the second year work plan options were presented and discussed. This conversation will continue in the next call planned for the end of June.
