NAHCR is seeking nominations for two Directors for the 2018-2019 Board of Directors. The minimum time commitment to serve on the Board of Directors includes two in-person board meetings annually, attendance at IMAGE annually, and monthly one hour conference calls, exclusive of the duties as outlined for specific areas of responsibility and any ad hoc meetings that require board discussion/input that arise from time to time in order to conduct the organization’s business. Specific areas of responsibility for the Director positions will be determined by the President and President-Elect in accordance with these guidelines.

You may choose to self-nominate or be recommended to run for a board position. Either way, you must meet all requirements for the position. If you choose to self-nominate, you will need to obtain a written recommendation from an Active, voting NAHCR member in addition to the demonstration of support from your supervisor.
