Local Sections Council

The Local Sections Council (LSC) is a forum for local sections to discuss issues of interest or concern, and through this structure, communicate these issues to the AIHA Board of Directors. The president and president-elect of each local section is a member of the Local Sections Council.  Voting privileges are granted to each local section president. The LSC meets annually at AIHce during the Local Sections Council Business Meeting.

If you're a president of your local section and are unable to attend the meeting, please fill out a proxy form.  The proxy form will assign voting rights to the officer/substitute representing your local section at the Local Sections Council Business Meeting.
