POA Looks for a New Office

Due to a move of our lessor to Red Bank, it has become necessary to seek a new home for POA.  That process is taking longer than we expected.  While we are conducting our search, please note our temporary change of address and new phone numbers.  We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to be in new space before the first of the year.

POA Connects With The S. Carolina Education Association

When the South Carolina Education Association faced a down turn in membership, POA was brought in to support the association. The project began with a statewide listening tour. Association leaders heard from members and prospective members in every region why enrollment had slumped and what the SCEA needed to do. Members urged the SCEA to increase its visibility in the media. Prospective members said they would have joined years ago, but no one asked. POA designed a communications program and a school-based membership recruitment plan, but the SCEA could not fund the projects. Then this March, the National Education Association voted to give the SCEA extra assistance. It appointed POA Executive Partner Bob Bonazzi trustee of the SCEA and the POA partners returned to Columbia. Membership growth is now an intense focal point of an energized staff and leaders who are focused on the future.

Introducing Partnership Health Center’s Pain Management Program

POA’s latest assignment, still in the design stage, is creating a communications plan to introduce a new state-of-the-art pain management program at the Partnership Health Center in Toms River, New Jersey. The Partnership Health Center is part of Integrity Health’s commitment to facilitating whole health for members and their dependents. It provides on-site physicians, nurses, and pharmacy services, and off-site laboratory services. The center is part of a complete medical management platform in which the primary care physician gets to know the patient and serves as his or her advocate at every step of any medical process. The new pain management program offers the opportunity to improve medical services.
