Advocacy

Anyone, including DHHBA members, members of the public, and outside organizations, may submit a request for DHHBA to publish or sign on to position statements or advocacy letters, author or sign on to amicus briefs, submit rulemaking petitions or comments, or participate in litigation or legal advocacy.

All of the following criteria must be met for DHHBA participation:

  1. Any position(s) taken by DHHBA must not conflict with DHHBA’s mission or bylaws.
  1. The legal issue(s) presented must have a systemic impact on or otherwise be relevant to DHHBA members.
  1. Necessity must exist for DHHBA participation. For example, the amicus briefs before the court have not fully addressed the issues relevant to DHHBA, or DHHBA members are likely to be negatively impacted if DHHBA does not participate.

To request DHHBA participation, please complete and submit the form below. Alternatively, for requests such as requests for DHHBA to sign on to a letter, or if you have a memorandum and/or materials to send us that explain what you are asking us to do, you may email us.
