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.

Vote for Your Member Representative

As an RHA member, you have the right to have your thoughts and opinions heard.  Every two years, we ask you to vote for a member to represent you at the meetings of RHA’s Board of Directors and bring your concerns to our leadership.  We are asking you to cast your vote by sending an email to [email protected] by Thursday, June 20, 2019.

This year, we are proud to present the nomination of Abel Sanchez, a producer and art director for CBS 2 Chicago.  Mr. Sanchez is a long-time supporter of RHA and former “Making a Difference” award winner.  For many years he has been the team captain of the CBS climb team for Hustle Up the Hancock (now Hustle Chicago) and is a multi-year Lung Health Champion.  This past year, he donated his considerable expertise to produce RHA’s women’s lung health public service announcements, which aired on national television during the month of February.  In addition, he is a seven-time Emmy award winner, and has held leadership positions for both CBS and ABC television.  We are delighted that he has agreed to be a nominee for this position.

If you would like to nominate any other candidates, please email us at [email protected].  And remember to cast your vote by June 20.
