NAMHSA Membership Changes

The NAMHSA Membership recently voted for a change in Membership protocol. You may view the changes to the Bylaws in this file,

Over the next few weeks we will be updating the website with the new terminology. For now, these are some of the most important points to keep in mind.

Effective on July 1, 2015

Individual Memberships, now called NAMHSA Memberships:

If you joined in 2013, your OLD individual membership would have expired on April 30 2015, so you no longer have a membership.

If you joined in 2014, your OLD individual membership would have expired on April 30, 2016. Your NEW NAMHSA membership will now expire on December 31, 2016.

If you joined/join in 2015, your NEW NAMHSA will now expire on December 31, 2017.

If you join anytime in 2016, your NEW NAMHSA membership will start on January 1, 2016, and will expire on December 31, 2018.

Showholder memberships, now called NAMHSA Memberships:

If you held a show in 2014, your show holder membership will expire one year from the date of your show in 2015.

If you held in show in 2015, your show holder membership will expire one year from the date of your show in 2016.

If you are planning on having a show after 7/1/2015 (not those applied for previously and with an approval date before 6/30/2015), you will now need to apply for a NAMHSA membership, and fill out the form along with the paperwork for your show. All NAN-Qualifying Show Holders must be NAMHSA Members. Your NAMHSA membership will expire on December 31, 2017.

All NAMHSA memberships are now one vote per person. The number of shows any one person holds has no bearing on the number of votes one receives.

NAN 2015

Your 2015 North American Nationals was held in sunny California at the Palm Springs Convention Center June 26, 27 and 28, 2015.

NAMHSA would like to thank the NAN 2015 Co-Chairs Donna and Harvey Stone, Registrar Jim West, and the numerous judges, stewards and other integral volunteers that made NAN happen. Thank you all so much!
