NEHA’s Election Process

NEHA knows that elections are a critical part of the democratic process and are one way in which members have a voice in the running of their organization. NEHA voting members have an opportunity to vote for candidates of a contested Board of Directors’ office. Boards of Directors’ Officers serve a one-year term and Regional Vice Presidents serve a three-year term. In addition, voting members have the opportunity to decide on language changes to the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws.
