Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a member of LHCA?
Simply by attending a meeting! Once you've attended a meeting, your name will be added to the mailing list for future meetings. If you do not attend a meeting for two years, your name will be removed from the list.

Are there membership dues?
There are no membership dues, but a registration fee is charged for each attendee to cover meeting expenses. Each host company sets the registration fee amount for their meeting.

When are meetings held?
Meetings are generally held twice a year, in the Spring and Fall, hosted by volunteer member companies.

What is the format of the meetings?
The format is primarily question and answer, although some host companies may also include presentations on given hot topics. Attendees are asked to submit their compliance questions in advance of the meeting. These questions are reviewed for anti-trust purposes prior to the meeting. There is no discussion of rates, commissions, concentrated efforts or lobbying. The subject is strictly compliance.

How can I obtain answers to questions discussed at a meeting?
You must attend the meeting in person. Answers to questions discussed at a meeting are not recorded or reproduced.

Are there other benefits that I would receive by attending a meeting?
A volunteer committee keeps various compilations and state surveys up to date for the benefit of association members. These compilations are updated prior to each meeting.
