The National Business Group on Health's Board of Directors, in response to changing times both in corporate America and the health care system, has refined its mission and sharpened its focus on serving corporate members by providing business solutions. Strong feedback from members and potential members has helped for our large employer strategy, which provides mix of short term tactical tools with longer term strategic initiatives and targets the key issues of health care costs, safety and quality. The Board's leadership has been instrumental in the development of key initiatives to achieve our mission and goals. These groups are comprised of members who have chosen to actively support work in specific areas of interest through both time and financial commitment.
In addition, our large employer corporate members with an interest and a need for global health and benefits information can now also become members of the Global Business Group on Health (GBGH — formerly GHBI). This new membership includes access to the many resources targeted to operations outside of the U.S. that our members and staff have developed over the years. If you are a global employer this additional membership opportunity may be right for you.
