NAHRI endorses the formation of regional, state, local, and subject-specific networking organizations. NAHRI encourages the collaboration of such groups with the national body and supports the alliance of the local and national groups for mutually favorable principles. Each chapter must choose three officers who must be from different healthcare organizations and who are current NAHRI national members to act as liaisons between the parties.
