Delegate Counts

How Does the Delegate Process Work?

  • The time frame for the Delegate cutoff is June 30th. Club memberships must be received and processed by this date.
  • Clubs are notified of the number of Adult Members.
  • Delegates slots are awarded to the clubs for every 35 Adult members or part thereof. 1 Delegate for 10 to 35 members, 2 Delegates for 36 to 70 members, etc.
  • Clubs which are under 10 Adult members do not receive a Delegate.
  • Clubs determine their own process for selecting Delegates, check with the Club President or Secretary for that process.
  • Club Presidents or Secretaries report the Delegates to AHA via online.
  • Once the Delegate(s) are selected by the club, the Delegate(s) can register for Convention.
  • Convention registration will open a few days after the June 30th cutoff, the early bird price is $250.

 

Do I need to be a Delegate to Attend?

Anyone wishing to attend convention can register as an Alternate/Guest/Member for the early bird price of $125. Note: only credentialed Delegates may vote on resolutions, officers, and convention elected committee positions. All members of AHA in good standing have the right to speak to an issue on the floor. Any delegate, alternate, or guest that is seeking recognition to speak to an issue shall go to a microphone and, upon being recognized by the Chair, shall state their name, their Region, before addressing the delegates. A voting delegate or member shall not speak more than twice on the same question or for more than two (2) minutes each time speaking.  No delegate or member shall speak for a second time until all delegates or members seeking recognition the first time have spoken.
