Welcome to the Western American Correctional Health Association

A POLL was sent to all current members of WACHSA, Friday June 28, 2019
regarding this announcement: 

Welcome to Western American Correctional Health Services Association (WACHSA). We are excited to announce WACHSA has been designated as your professional organization now that ACHSA (American Correctional Health Services Association) will be closing its doors as it seeks re-organization. WACHSA specifically serves members west of the Mississippi including members in California, Nevada and Oregon. We are excited to serve you and will continue to offer the same forum on current issues and needs confronting correctional health care as well as provide engaging and informational conferences.

You will find information on how to transfer membership from ACHSA to WACHSA. Please follow the link to pay your membership dues and begin enjoying the benefits pf WACHSA.

We are offering a one-time discount for members transitioning from ACHSA to WACHSA to accommodate the inconvenience of the transition and express our enthusiasm for having you join us. 

Due to the changes brought about by ACHSA (American Correctional Health Services Association) closing its doors as it seeks re-organization, WACHSA would like to propose a one year exception to the usual operations of WACHSA:

      • Paul Adler to stay on one extra year as President - until Fall 2020
      • Barbara Barney-Knox to remain the President-Elect - serving Fall 2020 to Fall 2022
      • Paulette Finander to stay on one extra year as Secretary - until Fall 2020 NOW RECRUITING

There would be No Change in the WACHSA Bylaws as this would be a one year exception.
