Board of Directors

Give back to the industry by volunteering to serve on NAHAD’s Board of Directors. Each year, three candidates (two distributors and one manufacturer) are selected based on the following criteria:

  • 1) hose and connectors is a core product line for the company
  • 2) proven dedication to NAHAD through service on committees, number of conventions attended, etc.;
  • 3) holding a senior management position at the NAHAD member company in good standing.

Want to nominate yourself or a colleague? Complete NAHAD’s Nomination form and provide the information necessary to highlight why this individual is right for the NAHAD Board of Directors. Board members are traditionally selected by November of each calendar year and begin their three year term during NAHAD’s Annual Convention, traditionally held in April or May of each year.

Let's bring an end to the water crisis!

Why charity:water? It's a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. charity: water funds sustainable water projects in areas of greatest need and works with local partners to implement them.

The members of NAHAD banded together in the fight to provide clean, safe drinking water to people in need all around the world. Together we've raised over $20,000 but we can still do more. For those who have yet to contribute, it's not too late. ­ Please consider making a tax deductible donation and help bring an end to the water crisis. NAHAD members are encouraged to donate because 100% of public donations are sent straight to the field.
