Why be a member?
The right to be informed
As a member of CDHAL, everyone receives the annual report of activities and prospects for the coming year, in addition to the financial statements and interim budget for next year.

The right to speak
All members are invited to attend the annual meeting of members, which constitute the major event in CDHAL associative life. This activity gives the opportunity to do a stetment of accounts of the previous year and provide accountability to members on activities throughout the year. Then, it is also the opportunity to participate in the orientation of the coming year. Members are entitled to speak at the meeting, that is to say, that they can ask questions on each of the points presented and seek clarification or to express their comments.
The right choice
Even more important than the right to more complete information, members have the right to elect their representatives at the annual meeting. Representatives, elected for a term of 2 years form the board of directors must comply with the mission of CDHAL and enforce the guidelines adopted at the meeting. Although there is no limit of posts on the board of directors, the CDHAL generally prefers to concentrate its composition to 9 directors, including the positions of president, secretary and treasury.
All members of CDHAL can also participate to activities and events throughout the year so that members can fully capture the themes addressed by the organization. In addition to raising awareness of emerging issues, the member reinforces their sense of belonging to CDHAL and can act as an ambassador of it.
