BHEF Members

BHEF members provide leadership and energy for BHEF’s work. Some members contribute to specific BHEF projects. Others advocate for policy changes at the state and federal levels. Still others lead in their particular communities, working to improve education at the regional level. BHEF’s semi-annual meetings provide members with the opportunity to better understand educational and workforce challenges and solutions, network with like-minded peers across sectors, and hear from experts in areas of interest to them. For more information about membership, contact Danielle Troyan.
