2022 NAHO MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS
Professional Development Conferences:
NAHO's Annual Professional Development Conference will be held in person, September 10 through 13 at the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada. Two to three different class sessions will be offered for each hour of the conference, with almost forty hours of CLE-quality class from which to choose. Completion of the entire conference would garner 17 hours of continuing legal education credits.
NAHO offers one Virtual Mini-Conference each year offering three hours of continuing legal education classes.
Certification: NAHO is the only national organization of administrative hearing officials which has a certification program for Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers. Upon successful completion of the educational and professional requirements and approval by the NAHO Board, a three-year certification is granted which can be renewed simply by keeping current on training in administrative adjudication.
Webinars: NAHO is providing six free one-hour continuing legal education webinars to its members during 2022. The first three webinars were in January, April, and May.
On-Demand Instruction: NAHO maintains a library of videos recorded from Professional Development Conferences and Webinars, which can be accessed online for a small fee. Viewing NAHO videos may also qualify for education credits toward NAHO certification and for self-study CLE credits in some states.
Customized Group Training: An agency may request customized training for their member-adjudicators in a particular area of administrative law or on specialized subjects. Presently, these are scheduled as webinars, with on-site training to resume in the future.
The NAHO News: NAHO's periodic newsletter keeps members informed about NAHO's activities and upcoming events. Members are encouraged to contribute articles of interest to administrative adjudicators.
Social Media Presence: Members can connect with NAHO by following NAHO on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

NAHO-logoed items include t-shirts, caps, padfolios, lapel pins, and face masks. Personalized, monogrammed NAHO items are available by special order.
Networking: NAHO is in the process of updating its website with new features to connect members.
