The NAHU House of Delegates provides chapters and their members with the formal opportunity to shape the direction of their association. Exercising this right, by sending delegates to the convention, is one of a chapter's greatest responsibilities.
Each NAHU chapter is entitled to a minimum of three voting delegates. One additional voting delegate is allowed for each additional fifty (50) active members over 100 members listed on NAHU's roster on March 31, 2016. State chapters are eligible to send up to a maximum of eight (8) delegates to the House of Delegates. Local chapters have no such maximum.
Chapters may designate an alternate for each one of its delegates. An alternate may replace a delegate unable to fulfill his/her voting duty.

Before Don’s term began in New Orleans, the NAHU Board of Trustees had begun an effort to improve overall operation of the Board and its work as the volunteer leaders of our Association by creating a Governance Committee. Its primary role would be to provide critical feedback to the Board as a whole on the numerous governance issues that we regularly face and to be an independent, but experienced perspective on operational concerns or improvements that might be considered.
As a result of their recommendations, the Board of Trustees has approved the following amendments to the NAHU bylaws to be considered at our House of Delegates in Albuquerque in June. The four separate bylaws amendments to be considered and a summary of the rationale for each one can be found here. This is the first step in a conversation that I hope members and especially delegates will have between now and the House of Delegates.
We welcome your feedback and questions. We are planning on having a couple of online meetings for members to discuss these proposed bylaws before we get to Albuquerque. We’ll also spend a good amount of time on this topic during the Town Hall and then of course when the House of Delegates meets at the end of convention.Please contact Brooke Willson with any questions.
