The House of Delegates provides chapters and their members with the formal opportunity to shape the direction of their association. Exercising this right, by sending delegates to the convention, is one of a chapter's greatest responsibilities.

Who is represented in the House of Delegates?
NABIP's bylaws (Article XI) specifically identify the groups below as being represented in the House of Delegates (HOD). NABIP Board of Trustee members and former NABIP Presidents are not eligible to serve as chapter delegates, they serve as delegates for their respective groups. Lists of the Board and past presidents are posted below.
- NABIP Board of Trustees Delegates
- Past National President Delegates
- State and Local Chapter Delegates
A chapter is entitled to a minimum of three voting delegates. One additional voting delegate is allowed for each additional 50 active members over 100 members listed on the March Membership Report. State chapters are eligible to send up to a maximum of eight delegates to the House of Delegates. Local chapters have no such maximum.
How to Get Credentialed - Once all of the chapters have submitted their delegate appointment information emails will be sent to each appointed delegate notifying them of their role and the credentialing requirements. The credentialing emails will go out in the beginning of June.
How to Credential an Alternate Delegate - An alternate delegate does not get credentialed unless they are replacing an appointed delegate. The chapter leadership is responsible for communicating with the alternate delegate to let them know if they need to be credentialed.
Being appointed as a delegate is not the same thing as being a credentialed delegate. You must be credentialed in order to be eligible to participate in the House of Delegates.

How Chapter Delegate Numbers are Determined
Each chapter is entitled to a minimum of three voting delegates. One additional voting delegate is allowed for each additional 50 active members over 100 members listed on the March membership report. State chapters are eligible to send up to a maximum of eight delegates to the House of Delegates. Local chapters have no such maximum.
Chapters may designate an alternate delegate for each one of its appointed delegates. An alternate delegate is used to replace a delegate who is unable to fulfill their voting duty. This transition occurs onsite at the Annual Convention during credentialing hours. The details of this process can be found below in the Credentialing Information section. All alternate delegates must be appointed by the May 24 deadline.
A sample of how delegate numbers are assigned. State chapters are limited to eight delegates.
- Membership of 1-149 = 3 Delegates
- Membership of 150-199 = 4 Delegates
- Membership of 200-249 = 5 Delegates
- Membership of 250-299 = 6 Delegates
- Membership of 300-349 = 7 Delegates
- Membership of 350-399 = 8 Delegates
- Membership of 400-449 = 9 Delegates
- Membership of 450-499 = 10 Delegates
- Membership of 500-549 = 11 Delegates
- Membership of 550-599 = 12 Delegates
The deadline for delegate appointments is Friday, May 24, 2023.
Note: Delegate appointment is a separate process from convention registration. You must complete a convention registration form, and pay all applicable fees, to register for convention.
