MOPH has contracted with Publishing Concepts Inc., (PCI) to commence the gathering of membership data for a new member directory. Our last directory was published in 2014.
PCI will begin to contact members by postcard and email on May 19, 2017.
The postcard and email will ask that members call a toll-free number to verify and update their information. This will continue until late Fall 2017 with a targeted new Membership Directory publication date in mid-July 2018, in time for the National Convention in Spokane, Washington.
This verification process is crucial in maintaining up-to-date information so that we can better support MOPH members and officers.
Please call PCI if only to confirm that the information we have on file is correct. There is no cost to verify your information or to have your information published in the directory. You choose if you want to be listed in the directory and what information to be printed in the directory. Information can only be published with your approval.
Once you have called PCI, there will be no further contact about the verification. If you choose to be listed in the directory, PCI will send emails with a link so you can view your information, make any changes before publication and load your photo.
Only MOPH Members will have the opportunity to purchase the directory. PCI is also offering a MOPH sweatshirt, T-shirt and travel bag to help defray the cost of publication.
AGAIN, there is NO obligation to purchase in order to participate in this directory project.
