NRHA seeks volunteer leaders
The National Rural Health Association is currently seeking volunteers for leadership positions within its Board of Trustees and Rural Health Congress.
NRHA's strength and success is largely the result of leaders, members and staff working together with a common purpose to ensure the broadest range and highest quality of health care services for rural America.
Our annual nomination and election process is key to the ongoing need to maintain the flow of our volunteer leadership.
We ask that you give thoughtful consideration to nominating or accepting nomination as an NRHA leader.
The Nominations and Credentials Committee is soliciting nominations for several NRHA leadership positions that will begin Jan. 1, 2013.
For more information on nominations, the leadership structure of the Board of Trustees, and its development path, click here. Nomination forms are due by Sept. 4.
