Apply to Serve on the 2011-2012 NAHU Legislative Council

Are you interested in having a lasting influence on the direction of NAHU’s policy objectives? NAHU is now accepting applications to serve on the 2011-2012 Legislative Council. Duties of a NAHU Legislative Council member include participating in a monthly teleconference to discuss important legislative developments and offer crucial insight into the consequences of policy issues by transforming everyday experience into realistic guidance.

In addition, the Legislative Council leads NAHU’s policy discussions by monitoring legislative developments and shaping NAHU’s response. Serving as a member of the Legislative Council provides a unique opportunity to shape NAHU’s policy focus in regards to present issues as well as future legislative objectives.

There are no special experience requirements for the Legislative Council and applicants from all market backgrounds are appreciated. Applicants must have an interest in and understanding of the dominant legislative issues facing our association today and be eager to contribute in this position of leadership.

If you are interested in serving on the Legislative Council, please submit an application. Please send all applications to Kristin Leighty at kleighty@nahu.org by Wednesday, March 30.
