Proposed Changes to the KHIMA Bylaws

KHIMA Members:

The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) House of Delegates (HoD) approved proposed changes to the AHIMA bylaws at the 2022 and 2023 House of Delegates meetings. Based on those approved changes, AHIMA has updated its bylaws.

KHIMA is required to maintain bylaws that are reflective of the AHIMA bylaws, as allowed by nonprofit state laws.  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 an official notification of the proposed changes and KHIMA members can review the changes through April 3, 2024.  Voting on these changes will occur electronically from April 4, 2024, through April 19, 2024. 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, Alicia Kellogg at
