If your state has not already established a state prostate cancer coalition, we can help! The NASPCC offers a 1½ day presentation and coalition formation meeting to bring together the identified stakeholders in your state, envision the direction of your state's prostate cancer coalition, and help with items such as developing your coalition's Mission Statement, Goals and Objectives. We furnish notebooks to the meeting participants with examples of Articles of Incorporation and sample by-laws, provide advice on how to form a 501(c)(3) organization, and post meeting assistance to help with maintaining momentum, answering questions, and keeping your new coalition on track.
State coalitions are expected to show significant progress toward four items listed below. New NASPCC state coalitions are set up with these expectations in place.
- Support Early Detection.
- Participate in Patient Education.
- Develop Statewide Network for Communication, i.e. e-mail/phone trees.
- Participate in National NASPCC activities, requests and tasks.
