The ToP Network is pleased to honor the National Association of County and City Health Officials as a 2013 "ToP Champion.”  NACCHO was chosen for this recognition for the results they have demonstrated through ongoing leadership in developing effective facilitators within their organization, as well as, nurturing a culture of participation with their 2,800 local public health department associate members and strategic partners across the country.

Since 2004, the ToP Network has acknowledged persons and organizations that have produced tangible results and made a measurable difference in their environment through the use of ToP methods. In particular, honored organizations reflect:

  • respect for inclusive participation
  • the ability to hear and include differing voices
  • the security to step into a world of no predetermined outcome
  • a capacity to engage creative processes with people to explore and create their own preferred future
  • the discipline to embrace effective facilitative leadership to build the foundation of true participation.

NACCHO’s vision is health, equity, and security for all people in their communities through public health policies and services. NACCHO’s mission is to be a leader, partner, catalyst, and voice for local health departments in order to ensure the conditions that promote health and equity, combat disease, and improve the quality and length of all lives. Through its many ToP initiatives it has demonstrated in significant and meaningful ways that it shares our core values of inclusive participation and profound respect.
