Leaders
Presenter: Susan Gaffney

Brief history on Standards
Continuous
Improvement
Re-Affiliation
process
Adoption of
Standards
Re-Chartering
of State
Organizations
“It has brought more cohesiveness
among the board and the affiliates. A
chartering committee was
established involving board and
affiliate members. The chartering
process has engaged board and
affiliate members that had not been
engaged and has brought much
interaction and excitement to NAMI
Kentucky.”
“Our big lesson so far is that we have
to communicate, communicate,
communicate. When we can harness
our energy in one direction, we're
unstoppable. We have to show
commitment to the process and an
unflagging belief that NAMI throughout Illinois - will come through
this better than ever.”
