The elections will decide who among the membership will oversee IHA’s work in the 2019-2021 period.

To be eligible, election candidates must be either an individual member or employed by a corporate member.

If elected, candidates must be willing to contribute to the shared responsibilities of the Board, and commit to attend the majority of its meetings. The Board meets three times a year.
