Per direction from the Board of Directors, AAHA held a bylaws election in December 2021. The voting closed on 12/31/2021 and the changes were passed. Those updates are summarized here:

  • Categories of membership in AAHA have been updated to reflect current practices and only AAHA-accredited members have voting rights.
  • Eligibility for membership has been redefined based on the trend towards corporate-owned practices.
  • Updates have been added to allow for virtual meetings, voting, and practice evaluations.
  • The annual member meeting (where members vote on officers and directors if there is more than one nominee) has been un-linked from the annual conference, although it is still intended that the vote takes place at the annual conference if circumstances allow.
