We encourage all members (associations, individuals and others) to participate in this year’s Annual Meeting of members. Please be aware that most cooperatives are members of NAHC through a Regional Member Association, such as MAHC, CAHC, CSI, CHANE, FNYHC, PAHC, NJFHC, etc., and do not have a vote separate from the vote cast of the Regional Member Association.  

Voting at the annual meeting is only by 1) the Regional Member Association; or 2) Direct Members of NAHC cooperatives, individuals and professionals who pay their dues directly to NAHC. 

Regional Member Associations will hold caucuses on Friday, October 18 from 5:45 pm – 6:30 pm to determine how the Regional Association Members will cast their ballots for the open Board positions. Cooperatives represented through their Regional Association can NOT pull their votes out of the Regional Association votes unless they join NAHC as a Direct Member.

Call for Volunteers: The Board requests that two members attending the Annual Conference volunteer to serve on the Credentials Committee to assist with the tallying of the votes. If you will be attending the Annual Conference and are interested, please contact the Chairman of the Board, Greg Carlson at Your generosity is much appreciated.

We hope to see you in Miami, Florida!

Karen Harvey, NAHC Secretary
