NAAHP Committees

NAAHP relies on the work of many member volunteers who staff numerous committees within the association. Each committee has its own charge. While three are composed of officers of NAAHP, most draw members from each of the four regions. NAAHP welcomes participation of all members and you are encouraged to contact a committee chair, or Julie Chanatry, NAAHP Past President, if you are interested in becoming involved.
