Governance: Community Boards

A board of directors, the majority of whom are patients at the health center, govern each Community Health Center.

The Montana Primary Care Association (MPCA) provides training and leadership development for these Boards. The MPCA orients new board members and educates them about their roles and responsibilities, the programmatic requirements for their health center, and best practices and their application.

The MPCA works with boards to develop their vision for their health center, plan strategically, and drive quality improvement throughout the organization. Additionally, MPCA assists boards with problem solving and mediation.
