Town Hall Survey Now Online!

This is an exciting time of year around the Office. Our yearly town halls are underway! We'll be visiting Morton and Solebury in the PA Counties, Camden and Bellmawr in New Jersey, and two different agencies in Philadelphia. (Our first town hall, at Action AIDS in Philly, is starting in just an hour and a half!) This is the time for people living with HIV/AIDS in the Philadelphia area to speak out about their HIV services. The Planning Council uses this information in setting priorities for the entire Philadelphia EMA.

This year, the Needs Assessment Committee and the Office of HIV Planning are working on a brand new way to gather data from PLWHA in the area. Our online consumer feedback survey was just launched! This new tool will provide PLWHA that are unable to attend the town hall meetings a way to let their voices be heard. If you are a provider of HIV services in the Philadelphia area, please get this link to your clients. The more positive people we hear from, the better we can plan services!

Thursday's Meetings Have Been Rescheduled

Hello everyone!

This is a simple notification that the RWPC and Nominations Committee meetings for this Thursday have been rescheduled, due to the impending snowstorm. These meetings will now be held on Thursday, February 18. It is particularly important that Planning Council members attend the full meeting next Thursday, as we will be voting on a reallocation request that needs to be completed before the end of the fiscal year on February 28.

For updated meeting information, please visit www.hivphilly.org/calendar.html. Thanks!
