Board

The NAACOS Board of Directors operates to advance the core mission of NAACOS, which focuses on fostering the growth of the ACO model of care. Board members represent a diverse range of ACO interests and help shape NAACOS priorities such as educating ACOs in operational and clinical best practices, advocating on behalf of ACOs with Congress and the executive branch, and educating the public about the value of accountable care. Board members serve three-year terms and 1/3 of the committee is comprised of newly elected members each year. Within the Board of Directors, there are three key committees: an executive committee, a policy committee and a governance committee.
