Additionally, president-elect nominees also must have served at least one year on either the Board of Trustees or the Rural Health Congress.Please note that all elected leaders are responsible for paying their own expenses to participate, including travel.

Members are encouraged to nominate themselves and others within the parameters outlined in the association bylaws (most positions are limited to two consecutive two-year terms). You may also nominate a qualified member for election to a position or nominate a current leader for a new position.
