Human resources generalists, as well as employee assistance program (EAP) counselors, managers, and directors, can keep abreast of the issues related to EAPs by joining a chapter of the EAPA. These groups also provide guidance to employers that have not yet set up EAPs in their own companies.
Two local chapters of the EAPA exist in Washington—a Pacific Northwest chapter and an Inland Northwest chapter. Contact information (phone and e-mail) for the chapters’ officers is available on the EAPA website at http://www.eapa.info
. Meanwhile, Washington employers may obtain information about setting up or belonging to a regional group by contacting:
