Registration Materials will be sent out to current members June 1, 2016. Only registration forms received with a post mark of July 1 or later will be accepted.   Members also get first pick of classes, so make sure your membership is current. Memberships run January 1- December 31 but anyone who joins in November and on, their membership will be good for the next year. See information about joining on our membership page.

A new member asked me how members got 1st pick of classes if they all could not mail back until July 1st, so I thought I would explain. Our bylaws say members get priority at NHA events, so members registrations are handled before non members, even if they are received at the same time.  If you want 1st pick of classes, join now! See our membership page and don’t even think about sending back before July 1st.  Any registration with a postmark before July 1st will be put at the bottom of the pile. We all have to follow the directions , don’t let your enthusiasm get the best of you!
