About Us

The National Community–Based Organization Network (NCBON) brings community–based organizations (CBOs) and their members into a national network to enhance capacities to 1) partner with universities/agencies within their neighborhoods and broader communities to promote health; and 2) to act collectively to influence decision–making and policy at a national level.

NCBON organizes a business meeting, community reception, and workshops at the Annual Meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA). Our members participate fully in policymaking, presentations, and publications, as part of the Community–Based Public Health (CBPH) Caucus. We work to expand the role of community in APHA.
