Many members have expressed interest in better understanding how USHPA operates, who makes decisions, and hear more about the financial picture. Come to a board meeting and find out! All members are invited to attend remotely, but you must pre-register using the link above to obtain remote access. Typically, the agenda includes the following, all open to members: committee meetings, board discussions, the general session, and of course the members meeting.

Agenda and Schedule

A draft agenda and schedule can be found in BOD meeting packet, which is typically posted 1-2 weeks prior to the meeting (see Meeting Resources below). Please check back at that time. If you are not able to attend in person, please be sure to contact a Director or a Committee Chair to provide feedback on any items of interest or concern.

Action Items

Committee recommended changes to the SOPs will be posted for membership review and feedback on a regular basis throughout the year before they are finalized by the committee for board review. Final change drafts to be approved by the board can be found in the BOD meeting packet 1-2 weeks prior to the meeting (see Meeting Resources below). If you are not able to attend in person, please be sure to contact a Director or a Committee Chair to provide feedback on any items of interest or concern.

Location

The Membership Meeting, General Session and any committee meetings will be held online. Please register for the sessions you're interested in using the links above.

Online Meeting Access

Online meeting access is available to members as a member benefit and to keep you informed of USHPA’s efforts to further our mission (please register online to obtain remote access). The board discussed opening meetings to the public but doing so created additional hurdles that would ultimately result in less access on a regular basis to members. This is due to every individual present, not just directors, being required to provide their approval to be broadcast for each meeting. It would also require that each individual provide releases related to their likeness and permission to use for broadcast purposes. Since non-approval to be broadcast could be provided by attendees at any point up to the meeting start, any denials would result in last minute cancellations of meeting broadcasts. This seemed problematic if we wanted to keep our target audience informed on a regular basis.

Next Annual In-Person Meeting

To be determined.
