Annual Chapter Recharter

All Chapters are required to complete the Annual Chapter Recharter to continue affiliation with IAHCSMM. The Annual Recharter process was developed to:

  • Demonstrate you are an active Chapter and meeting the requirements of a Constituent Chapter of IAHCSMM
  • Readily identify your current Board members and Chapter Members
  • Make note of the activity level of your Chapter
  • Maintain accurate records of your bylaws in accordance with the Association’s bylaws

Once a recharter has been approved, the Chapter will receive a waived registration for the designated Chapter Representative to attend the IAHCSMM Annual Conference and Expo.

Chapters wishing to compete for the STERIS Chapter of the Year Awards must submit the application along with the Annual Recharter. These Awards recognize an IAHCSMM Chapter that has significantly advanced and embraced the CSSD profession.

Chapter of the Year Awards are given in two categories:

  • Large Chapter of the Year – Chapters with over 50 IAHCSMM members
  • Small Chapter of the Year – Chapters with under 50 IAHCSMM members

Winners of each category will receive an engraved plaque, plus $1,500 from STERIS Corporation to help defray the cost of accepting the award at the Annual Conference and Expo.
