EXPERT GROUPS                         (one for each area)


Expert groups will identify priority actions in each ‘area’ based 
on a review of MB stakeholder recommendations and evidence in 
systematic reviews.
 
Expert Groups will include:
• 2 MPHA members
• RHA representative
• representatives from each recommendation document
• 2 to 3 content ‘experts’ (including academia)


Each Expert Group will meet 2 to 3 times.
 
Challenges
l Creating and demonstrating ‘value added’ for members and 
  potential members 
  l e.g. holding learning events, building the web site members lounge 
l Expanding and diversifying the membership base to include 
  students and more professionals working in both public health 
  and fields related to public health interests 
  l e.g. urban planning, community development  
l Identifying reliable sources of revenue
  l e.g. grants, special projects in collaboration with partner organizations 
l Building organizational capacity to seek funding support, manage 
  special projects 
  l Without staff, it is difficult to identify potential funding opportunities and 
    to develop/submit proposals 
l Determination of MPHA’s role in advocacy
                                                                                      16
