Robert G. Harmon, MD, MPH, President, ACPM
We are indebted to Dr. Robert Harmon, the current President of ACPM for the leadership he has personally provided on behalf of the JMI -- both with regard to the anticipated offer of the staff support needed to continue the current web page, and for the high visibility given to the primary goal of the JMI in the new ACPM Strategic Plan. David Blodgett, Robert Harmon, Annette Kussmaul, Charles Schade, and Hugh Tilson. Dr. Harmon brought greetings from the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM). At this point, Dr. Harmon entered, and the order of business was changed to allow Dr. Harmon's presentation to begin immediately. Speaking for ACPM as ACPM's president, Dr. Harmon presented two concept proposals from ACPM - one in which ACPM would provide office and staff support services for AAPHP, and another in which ACPM and AAPHP would formalize their mutual relationship as an "Affiliation" agreement. Details of the proposed "Services" agreement would include: (1) ACPM service as the organizational address, telephone contact, and communication medium for AAPHP; (2) ACPM management of AAPHP's membership database and membership renewal process, including sending renewal notices and depositing dues payments; (3) ACPM to compile and distribute up to four AAPHP Bulletins per year; (4) ACPM maintenance of an AAPHP membership listserv; (5) ACPM to serve as a repository for corporate documents, such as minutes of meetings; and (6) ACPM to carry out the Job Market Initiative with appropriate training and support from AAPHP members. Much of this would be carried out electronically, with an annual fee to be negotiated by mutual agreement. With respect to the staff services agreement, Dr. Harmon said he believed the ACPM proposal would probably cost AAPHP only a small amount more than our previous agreement with the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC). ACPM would not recover all its costs under such an agreement, but would regard any losses as an "investment" in public health services and in membership recruitment. Details of the proposed "Affiliation" agreement could include the following elements: (1) Regular communication between ACPM and AAPHP, including updates of organizational activities and issues in each other's governance meetings and publications; (2) ACPM Public Health Regent to be a member of AAPHP (which is already ACPM's policy); (3) Joint member recruitment and mutually discounted dues; (4) A special role for AAPHP in the new Center for Preventive Medicine; (5) A special role for AAPHP in the Preventive Medicine meeting series, including leadership of the public health track; (6) Coordination (although not approval) of each other's committee and policy activities, and Web site activities; and (7) Other activities as mutually agreed upon. With respect to the "Affiliation" agreement, Dr. Harmon clarified that this would be an agreement between independent organizations, not the "component society" proposal that AAPHP has repeatedly declined. Dr. Goyal requested clarification about whether staff support for meetings would be included; Dr. Harmon replied that this is not part of the current proposal. Dr. Harmon clarified that most incoming calls would be answered by voicemail, with prompt return of calls. Dr. Harmon replied that ACPM's hope is that the two proposals can be considered together, but that any agreement(s) would only be for a one-year period and would be re-evaluated regularly. Dr. Harmon clarified that services could begin within a month or two after conclusion of an agreement. Dr. Goyal thanked Dr. Harmon for his interest in, and pursuit of, stronger relationships between ACPM and AAPHP.
