CHNA 20 is goverened by a volunteer Steering Committee, which takes an active role in the direction and vision of the organization.  

Bay State Community Services is the fiscal agent for CHNA 20. As such, BSCS is responsible for receiving, depositing, and administering all CHNA 20 funds according to contract specifications. Contracts with our fiscal agent and annual review processes are overseen by the Steering Committee. 

Our Operating Principles provide the framework for our activities and process. You may download a copy of our Operating Principles here.

Steering Committee Meetings are held every other month, on the third or fourth Thursday. Meetings take place at various locations throughout the CHNA 20 catchment area. All Steering Committee meetings are open to the public, and community participation is highly encouraged. Find upcoming Steering Committee Meeting information on our calendar.

If you are interested in joining our Steering Committee, you may download and submit an application form.
