Annual Member Meeting

We want to hear from you!

As a member of Respiratory Health Association, your opinion matters. RHA members have input into RHA’s initiatives through a Representative on the RHA Board, who attends Board meetings and presents the views of our community. You are also invited to attend our online annual meeting to hear about our most recent successes and express your thoughts directly to RHA’s leadership.

This page provides details about your membership, including information from your RHA Member Representative and details about the virtual annual member meeting.

Annual Member Meeting

We will host our next annual member meeting Friday, June 25, 2021.
