About Us

Volunteer for a FAHQ Team

FAHQ is a volunteer professional association. Participation on FAHQ teams not only allows the association to effectively deliver benefits to members, but also provides volunteers with an opportunity to develop their own professional skills and visibility within the healthcare quality field in Florida.

FAHQ’s mission is developing, supporting, and promoting professional expertise in healthcare quality.   FAHQ continues to reorganize teams and functions to better support the primary strategic goals of the association.  FAHQ leadership welcomes interested member volunteers to participate in delivering our members’ benefits and shaping the future of the association.

Except for the Executive Team, all teams have one or more members from the FAHQ membership at large.  All FAHQ membership categories may serve as team members. Student and Organization Members may not serve as team leaders, but all other members can serve as team leaders unless the position is designated to a member of the FAHQ Board.
