Industry Partners Program


Our Industry Partners Program seeks to provide our members with opportunities to learn from different companies about their experiences and to bring an industry point of view to the table when we consider ideas that impact the whole human services field. 


We are dedicated to helping public human services professionals do their job more efficiently, effectively and creatively. When we succeed, our members are able to deliver on their mission and strengthen their communities. The Industry Partner Program is a part of these successes.


The Industry Partners Program is a key contributor to achieving APHSA's mission: to pursue excellence in health and human services by supporting state and local agencies, informing policymakers, and working with our partners to drive innovative, integrated and efficient solutions in policy and practice. It also provides our industry partners with an advanced level of access to the public human services marketplace. 


The APHSA Industry Partner Program provides our partners with: 

  • Targeted exposure to pivotal decision-makers and forward-thinking practitioners that strongly support the mission and services that industry partners provide.
  • Access to leaders in the profession through APHSA conferences, workgroups and webinars.
  • Opportunities to share success stories and breakthrough products with the field. Industry partners are often called upon by APHSA to be presenters in our conferences and educational webinars. We have also provided our partners with help in obtaining our members' participation in their activities.
  • Our Policy & Practice bi-monthly magazine offers editorial opportunities to contribute success stories as well as discounted prime advertising placements.
