Starting H&I Panel Meetings

Any MA member, group*, region, or district can establish and run H&I panel meetings. Please begin by reading the H&I Handbook here.

Once you have established relationships with one or more facilities that would like to have H&I panel meetings, you may request printed materials to help you establish and/or maintain meetings. We ask for information about the facilities where you plan to offer meetings, as the H&I Trustee or Office Administrator will contact the facility to validate the literature request.

*If you are a facility interested in hosting an H&I panel, please email the H&I Trustee at [email protected].
