Reference Committee Hearings focus on the specific business submitted for consideration to the House of Delegates (HOD) in the areas of association policy, bylaws, and directives. To keep the House of Delegates sessions flowing smoothly, the PDHA committee reports, policy, bylaws, and directives are assigned to 2 or 3 reference committees of three individuals appointed by the president who are charged with making an in-depth study of the issues and recommending actions for PDHA’s consideration. Delegates and members alike may submit testimony, written or verbal, regarding their positions on the various proposals. Share your
thoughts in this town hall format knowing that your comments will be considered when the reference committees make their recommendations to the House of Delegates.
