As the association is currently working towards the amalgamation of HPBAC National and the Regional Chapters, the structure of the organization will be changing shortly. The Amalgamation will mean that the chapters will be replaced with Regional Committees, whose responsibilities will be to advocate locally for the organization. This will mean working with our national committees to execute plans and to establish a local presence within each given region. The purpose of the Amalgamation, among other things, is to relief legal and administrative burdens from each region to allow focus to be placed on member and industry needs. Amalgamation should be completed by December 2017.
