The NFHCA’s leadership is composed of a Board of Directors, elected by the NFHCA membership. The Board of Directors is composed of members of the Executive Committee and Group Representatives.
Each elected board member serves a three-year term, except for the Past-President — who serves a one-year term — and specified initial shorter terms designed to establish the three rotational slates outlined in the NFHCA bylaws. For a full explanation of positions, terms, eligibility, and responsibilities, please review Article IV of the NFHCA bylaws.
Committee chairs are appointed by their committees and approved by the Board of Directors to lead NFHCA Standing Committees.
The NFHCA also has a dedicated group of staff members.
