The AHCA elections are for three officer positions (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary/Treasurer). These are one-year terms. Additionally, AHCA will elect a Not for Profit Representative, one Multifacility Representative and four At-large Representatives. These are two-year terms. 

In accordance with the AHCA bylaws, the AHCA Council of States elects the AHCA officers on an annual basis. The At-large Representatives are elected on an annual basis as well. However, the number of At-large seats up for election in any given year is dependent upon the positions available. Four of the seven At-large seats are up for election in 2022. Three At-large seats will be up for election in 2023.

The NCAL elections are for the three officer positions (Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary/Treasurer) and seven At-large Representatives. In accordance with the NCAL bylaws, NCAL’s Board of Directors and State Leaders elect NCAL’s officers and 7 of 14 At-large Representatives on an annual basis.
