Washington, D.C., May 9, 2018: 

Over the past four months, NAHC has been working hard to understand the current state of our association and to make strategic choices for the future. In February, nearly 400 of you shared your perspective through a member feedback survey. Your perspective helped define what role NAHC must play in the industry and what our strategic priorities must be over the next 18+ months.

Specifically, we learned from the member survey that:

  • Members highly value NAHC’s advocacy efforts and regulatory expertise. 90% of respondents find NAHC’s advocacy efforts to be extremely valuable or valuable to them and their organization today, and 87% of respondents find the research and information we provide to be extremely valuable or valuable.
  • Members want advocacy to remain NAHC’s top priority.61% of respondents believe that lobbying for regulations and legislation at the federal level should be the top strategic priority for NAHC in the next 3-5 years.
  • While members are overall satisfied with their experience, we can do better. 79% of respondents are extremely likely or likely to recommend NAHC to another provider.

We have now drafted a comprehensive strategic plan (READ IT HERE) to guide our transformation to NAHC 2.0, and we would like to invite you to share your feedback or comments before we finalize the plan with our board in June.

The draft plan is attached for your review. And you can share your comments with us through this form here.

From the Board of Directors, President William A. Dombi, and everyone on the NAHC staff — thank you for your input and support.
