Call for Nominations to the NAHC Board of Directors

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is calling for nominations of candidates for the three (3) open seats on the NAHC Board of Directors in this 2021 election cycle.  The three seats that are up for election this year represent members in the following sections:

  • Home Health
  • Hospice
  • Business Partner

NAHC is also soliciting recommendations for two appointed positions. These nominees can come from any section of NAHC membership. Candidates not selected for the election process will automatically be considered for appointment to the Board for the two appointed positions.

Terms of office are for three years, with a limit of two consecutive terms. Board eligibility is re-established after three years off the Board.

The nomination period begins Monday, August 9th and concludes Friday, August 20, 2021.

The nominations will be submitted electronically through the NAHC Election Candidate Nominations Portal. Please be prepared to submit a personal statement regarding the nominee’s expected contribution to NAHC governance, an updated/current Resume or CV, and a high-resolution Headshot.

The Board meets six times a year, with three in-person meetings and three virtual meetings.

The purpose of the combination of elected and appointed Board membership is to ensure that the Board has well-rounded talent and diversity to ensure the best service and that we are representative of the NAHC membership. Appointments are based on an evaluation of the elected board member qualifications. The appointments are intended to fill any gaps in needed skills and sector representation as well as to ensure a diverse and well-rounded board of directors. Appointments will be made by the 2021 Board members following a review of the election outcomes.

Throughout, the Board election process will be managed by the NAHC Governance and Nominating Committee charged with an ongoing role of achieving a high performing Board. The Committee will be responsible for cultivating and selecting Board candidates for election or consideration for an appointment. The Committee will also take steps to encourage highly-active participation and engagement of NAHC members in the Board elections and NAHC governance.

Election eligibility is based on two factors. First, the individual must be employed by a NAHC member in good standing. Second, the individual must be running for a Board seat that is consistent with their selected voting section in NAHC. Members designate the one voting section in which they will participate. If the member is eligible for more than one section, the member must select just one for voting and board qualification purposes.

The three elected Board positions up for election this year are as follows:

  1. Home Health – The Member operates as a Medicare or Medicaid participating home health agency.
  2. Hospice – The Member operates as a Medicare or Medicaid participating hospice.
  3. NAHC Business Partner Provides items or services that support the delivery of home care, home health, and/or hospice services by NAHC provider members.

The NAHC Governance and Nominating Committee invites all eligible individuals to consider participating as a member of the Board.  NAHC 2.0. was created to ensure we serve have a voice within our association.  It is an exciting time for the home care and hospice community as NAHC moves into a new generation as the leading voice for home care and hospice in Washington, D.C. There is a heightened energy around all the new opportunities that NAHC 2.0 brings, and those opportunities are best realized through a strong and vibrant Board of Directors.

Election results will be announced at the Opening General Session of the NAHC Annual Meeting by the Chair of the Governance and Nominating Committee.

NAHC Urges You to Serve on 3 New Advisory Councils

With the current successes of NAHC’s strengthening of member engagement opportunities, the Board of Directors has approved the establishment of three new advisory councils. The new councils, focused on Palliative, Pediatric, and Rural health care, will provide portals for NAHC members to advise the association on policy, advocacy, education, business best practices, and more. These councils will interface with the existing advisory councils and Board committees to ensure that any special needs and interests of these sectors are addressed.

The Palliative Care Advisory Council is intended to represent the broad universe of palliative care services in the home.  While it will work closely with the Hospice Advisory Council, it encompasses palliative care that is beyond end-of-life services. It is anticipated that a core goal of the Palliative Care Council will be expanding coverage of the array of palliative services under Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance plans along with refining standards of practice.

The Pediatric Advisory Council brings a voice to NAHC members that serve the unique needs of pediatric patients in home care. These services include post-natal care, private duty nursing, infusion therapy, hospice care, and home health services. Pediatric home care serves a distinct patient population with often Medicaid or commercial insurance as the payer, thereby presenting both special advocacy and service supports needs.

The Rural Advisory Council brings a deep focus on the unique issues that arise in delivering care in rural areas. The shortage of practitioners, the closing of rural hospitals, the sheer distance driven to provide home care, and many more elements of health care in rural areas trigger a need for a forum where rural providers can share solutions, refine policy advocacy to address specific rural concerns, and help NAHC provide appropriate attention to rural health care.

NAHC invites members to submit nominations to these new advisory councils. Submissions should be sent to Raul Suarez at rsuarez@nahc.org.
