The structure of our state association is now geared for more involvement of you, the membership! The bylaws have been reformatted to AHIMA guidelines and are based on their feedback and approval.
In explanation, our 17 districts are now consolidated into 11 regions. (See District/Region Activities link on the left to view the map for your region and district listing by county.) The district associations are not affected by this change.
Region 1: Local Chapters 1 and 2.
Region 3: Local Chapters 13, 14.
Region 4: Local Chapter 12.
Region 5: Local Chapter 11.
Region 6: Local Chapters 9 and 10.
Region 7: Local Chapters 8, 16, and 17.
Region 8: Local Chapter 7.
Region 9: Local Chapters 4 and 15.
Region 10: Local Chapter 3.
Region 11: Local Chapters 5 and 6.
Each region is served by a Region Director (elected position) and committees: Education, Convention, Legislative, and Member Relations. The Region Directors appoint committee chairs and each chair will appoint committee members (with Directors approval).
The Region Director roles and responsibilities are outlined in the job description. Education, Convention, Legislative, and Member Relations will be assigned on a rotational basis to a Region Director. Committee assignments will be outlined in policies and procedures.
Each year, we will elect president-elect, and two Region Directors on an alternating basis.
