The governance of any organization should reflect the diversity of the community it serves.

All regions and interests need representation on the governing body of the IALHA, so PLEASE CONSIDER SERVING on the BOARD OF DIRECTORS, REGISTRY BOARD, or AUDIT BOARD.

The nomination process for the 2021 election cycle will begin on June 15th and close July 31st.
