Who are the Alliance Members?

The Alliance membership is available to organizations committed to coordinating action on shared goals to improve the health of ALL people in South Carolina.
The “Member” is a short way to refer to the Member Organization’s Main Representative at the Alliance (CEO, Executive Director, or member of the executive team).
Staff of  Member Organizations are eligible to participate as Acceleration Team Members.
Individuals and organizations that are helping achieve the Alliance’s vision for a Healthier South Carolina but who are not Members, are referred to as “Partners” or “Collaborators”.

Role of the Alliance

The Alliance for a Healthier South Carolina is an unprecedented collaboration of change agents committed to improving the health of ALL people in South Carolina at a pace never seen before. Considering the abundance of work in the state, the Alliance will not implement additional projects but instead will focus on:
Supporting existing work: Making sure that the Alliance leverages the existing and potential assets and expertise of other coalitions and organizations in the state as well as potential funding sources that support the vision for a healthier South Carolina.
Influencing: Using its collective voice to influence organizational, policy, and systems change in a way that leverages the work of organizations and coalitions that share a common vision for a healthier South Carolina for ALL.
Catalyzing Action: Raising awareness to catalyze individual and collective action to address the root causes of poor health for populations who are currently not thriving in our state.
Enabling Collaboration: Encouraging and supporting the alignment of different coalitions and organizations that are addressing the priorities of the Alliance.
Enabling Innovation: Providing a common vision for the future that each member and partner can develop individually or in partnership with others.
Being Data-Driven: Using and disseminating data that measures the collective progress of South Carolina towards the common vision for health improvement.

Expectations of Member Organizations

Senior Leadership: The main representative of the organization should be the CEO, Executive Director, Board president, or part of the executive leadership of the organization, and attend 75% or more of the Alliance senior leadership meetings.

Share Expenses: The Member Organizations will authorize monetary contributions to support the operations of the Alliance. The amount needed to cover annual expenses is determined by the Alliance Leadership Team in December of each year.

Gold Standard of Membership

It’s not about the Alliance, it is about South Carolina’s people and organizations achieving the Alliance vision together.
Collective Mindfulness and Self-Motivation: Members are self-motivated to enhance their current work in alignment with the collective agenda for health improvement of the Alliance. This means that members are encouraged to lead or join others in initiatives that support the vision for a healthier South Carolina for ALL.
Accountability: Member organizations will inform other Alliance members about the new or enhanced actions that they are taking in alignment with the Alliance vision, and share results.
Promote Alignment: Members with capacity to influence resources and/or policy, will promote alignment of efforts to avoid duplication and maximize the effectiveness of the existing resources.
Be Part of the Collective Voice of the Alliance: Members are part of the discussions and disclose restrictions to support collective decisions.
