NCHN is a membership organization and thus is governed by a Board of Directors that is elected by the membership. Serving as a Director of NCHN is an excellent opportunity to expand your leadership skills, interact on a regular basis with your peers, and give back to the Association!

In preparation for the 2013 NCHN Annual Membership Meeting, which will be held during the 19th Annual Educational Conference in New Orleans, LA, April 16-19, 2013, we are seeking nominations and recommendations of persons interested in serving as a Director. At the Annual Membership Meeting, the membership will be voting on a slate of directors. The term will be for three years, April 2013 - April 2016. The current number of board members is nine (9) and up to four (4) directors will be elected.

The By-Laws state that “Each director shall be a natural person and shall be an employee of or otherwise affiliated with a Voting Member and that no compensation shall be paid to directors by the association.” The powers of the Directors are also outlined in the By-Laws, “Except as reserved to the members by law, by the Certificate of Incorporation or by these Bylaws, all business of the Association shall be managed by and be under the direction of the board of directors, who shall have and may exercise all of the powers of the Association.”

The Board meets approximately four times a year: two - three times by conference call and once or twice face-to-face. The face-to-face meetings are held before, during and/or after the Annual Educational Conference and maybe in conjunction with another national meeting during the year. Arrangements are made for Directors that cannot attend the face-to-face meeting to participate by conference call. The conference calls are approximately 90 minutes. The 2013 Annual Board Retreat will be held before the beginning of the 2013 Annual Educational Conference, on Tuesday afternoon, April 16, 2013 from 4:00 PM – 6:30 PM. All potential Directors listed on the 2013 ballot must attend the 2013 Board Retreat in New Orleans on Tuesday, April 16, 2013.
