        1. Proposed Peer Consultation Guidelines:

          1. Starting: 8 max., originally chosen by GBAB based on submitted ‘interest profiles’ to start the group(s). Thereafter, subsequent membership by group selection. Must be members of UMHCA. Based on interest profiles sent to UMHCA.

          2. Originally facilitated by UMHCA Board member, thereafter by monthly appointment from the peer consultation group. Default facilitator is the UMHCA board member. Facilitator is to see the voted on agenda is followed.

          3. Time Frame: 90 minutes, monthly basis

          4. Process of group formation, including “interest profile”

            1. Name, copy of license, therapist specialties, short bio. What are you looking for? Days available for monthly peer consultation.

          5. Attendance policy to eliminate confusion. Something like: two unannounced successive absences and you're out

          6. When members leave, new members are to be selected from the group based on UMHCA submitted interest profiles

          7. Peer Consultation Format: 1) review of meeting’s agenda, such as cases desired to be staffed, information desired to be shared, articles to be discussed, new members to be added, facilitator of the next peer consultation group etc. 2) vote on the priorities for that session, 3) set the agenda, 4) enact the agenda in a timely and orderly manner.

          8. Interest profile could be a part of the UMHCA conference.

          9. There will need to be an open box as all are not tech savvy.
