NOTE: The association combined in September 2014 with the Wyoming Hospice Organization and has created a 501c6 through which many of its activities will be conducted. This entity is Hospice & Palliative Care Association of the Rockies. New members of this board were elected in May 2015. The previous 501c3 entity will continue, focusing on educational efforts, but will be renamed.
