- Strategic Alliance Partners
Strategic Alliance Partners are non-profit organizations and associations, that do not share similarities with, nor qualify to be, Institutional Organizations, but wish to align with CSHEMA in a mutually beneficial relationship. Details of the partnership would be outlined in a memorandum of understanding (MOU) and approved by the Board of Trustees. A CSHEMA member will be designated as a Special Representation Liaison to work alongside the Principal Office Staff to ensure the MOU is implemented properly.
Members within the Strategic Alliance Partnership are not allowed to hold an elected position/office, vote in any elections, serve on or chair committees, or lead a Community of Practice. We do encourage Strategic Alliance members to be involved in CSHEMA Communities of Practice. Also, marketing and advertising to CSHEMA members may only be done within the parameters of their MOU with CSHEMA.
