Virtual- CHIA Member Engagement Meeting (House of Delegates)

Dear CHIA Delegates and Alternate Delegates,

On behalf of the CHIA Board of Directors, thank you for participating in the 2020 CHIA Member Engagement Meeting / House of Delegates (HOD). As we navigate this complex and challenging time, the health and wellbeing of the health information community is a top priority. The CHIACON20 HOD will be held virtually on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 from 1:00 - 3:30 p.m. (same date scheduled for CHIACON20). Please hold this date and time on your calendars.

The CHIA Board and Delegates or their alternates constitute the HOD and each delegate shall have one vote. There shall be no voting by proxy. Only CHIA Active members in good standing may be seated as delegates. This is an open member engagement and business meeting. All CHIA members are invited to attend. There is no fee to attend this event.

In addition to routine association business, the 2020 delegates will be asked to approve proposed revisions to CHIA’s Bylaws.

The House of Delegates materials include:

  1. Welcome Letter
  2. House of Delegates Agenda and Instructions
  3. CLA Delegate Role to the CHIA House of Delegates
  4. CHIA 2020 - 2022 Strategic Plan
  5. CHIA 2020 - Proposed Bylaws Revisions
  6. CHIA 2020 Annual Report
  7. CHIA 2020 Delegate Roster - CLA Leaders: Please review & confirm delegates

Please download the HOD materials and utilize them to prepare for your participation at the virtual event.

Delegates should obtain input on the 2020 Proposed Bylaws revisions from their CLA leadership and general membership. It is important that feedback be received from CHIA members. All information received during the HOD deliberations will be taken into consideration.

On April 23, CHIA held the CLA Leadership Forum/House of Delegate Orientation Webinar to review this important information. All CLA Delegates and Leaders were encouraged to attend this informational presentation.

If you have any questions regarding the HOD agenda, topics, or other details related to your participation in the 2020 CHIA HOD annual business meeting, please contact your CLA President, CHIA Board Liaison, CHIA President Nancy Andersen, or me.

Sincerely,

Sharon Lewis, MBA, RHIA, CHPS, CPHQ, FAHIMA
