Greetings to all of you who support the HANP! We hope that 2017 has treated you well so far. The past 15 months have been full of hard work and we are excited to share with you some of the highlights and more importantly, tell you what is to come in 2017.
First of all we want to thank all of you who have supported us as the board has worked very hard to bring the HANP back to a thriving speciality organization. As an organization our goal is to promote excellence in the practice of homeopathy. In these past 15 months we have worked many hours to restore a solid foundation so we can accomplish our goals.
Our first step has been to bring the Diplomate of HANP (DHANP) credentialing process back to the HANP from the Council for Homeopathic Certification. We have spent the year detailing out the exact steps that are required to gain diplomate status of homeopathy within the naturopathic profession. This will allow us to establish and uphold specialist standards and to provide quality homeopathic education.
Towards this end, the HANP board came together in Colorado at the end of February to work on this process. Specifically, we finished the testing competencies, developed the outline for HANP Continuing Education, and reached out to established teachers to provide further educational offerings.
Next, we will recruit new and support existing DHANPs as well as expand our membership. To accomplish this we are reaching out to students to establish a presence at all of the naturopathic schools, connecting with new NDs, and developing comprehensive continuing education. Please visit HANP.net to see the newest changes to the website, the application to become a DHANP, and our continuing education offerings as they become available.
An ongoing objective is to build alliances with other professional homeopathic organizations. In April, many of the HANP board members will be attending/teaching at the Joint Homeopathic Conference in Atlanta. The HANP board is in ongoing conversation with the American Institute of Homeopathy to support each other’s efforts. The North American Society of Homeopaths and the HANP are pursuing ways in which we can work together.
We are excited to highlight some new membership benefits. We are securing discounts on homeopathic software, books and supplies for the HANP community. Current and future benefits can be found at HANP.net.
It is an exciting time to be a part of the HANP. Please take a moment to renew your membership online. Thank you in advance for your support. Please reach out to us if you feel inspired by our mission and want to play an active role in its manifestation.
