Section Objectives
   Users will be able to:

  • Identify the potential roles that Arthritis Foundation (AF) chapters, state health departments and system partners may play in implementing the AF Life Improvement Series programs
  • Describe how to negotiate mutual roles and responsibilities with a partner
  • Describe why and how to use the standard Program Co-sponsorship Agreement to document responsibilities



After successfully marketing the programs to a potential partner and identifying the interest to move to the next level, the next logical steps are to secure a commitment and formalize the relationship with a written agreement.  While it may take a lot of time to work out all the details about roles, responsibilities and expectations, this upfront work is critical to ensuring a mutually beneficial outcome for all involved parties.
