Proposed Changes to KHIMA Bylaws

KHIMA Members:

The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) recently changed its membership categories and, therefore, updated the AHIMA bylaws to be in line with those changes.

KHIMA is required to maintain bylaws that are reflective of the AHIMA bylaws. Therefore, the KHIMA Board is proposing bylaw changes which can be reviewed below.

Per section 14.1 of the current KHIMA bylaws, KHIMA members are given at least 30 days prior to voting to review any proposed bylaw changes. 

Based on this requirement, this email is considered official notification of the proposed changes and KHIMA members can review the changes through October 6, 2021.  Voting on these changes will occur electronically from October 7, 2021, through October 22, 2021. A separate email will be sent to the members requesting their vote on the proposed changes.

Should you have questions about the proposed bylaw changes, please contact KHIMA President, Brenda Olson – bolson@gpha.com.

14.1 Adoption of Amendments

The Authority to amend these Bylaws shall be vested solely in the active members of this Association called for this purpose. A majority of the votes cast by the active members participating shall be sufficient to alter, repeal or adopt any new bylaw amendment, provided that a copy of the proposed amendment has been sent to every member at least thirty (30) days before the call for the vote.
