Welcome to NAHO

The National Association of Hearing Officials, Inc., is a professional nonprofit organization formed in 1987 comprised of individuals involved in the process of administrative adjudication. The twelve-member Board of Directors is elected by NAHO's membership and represents all sections of the country and a variety of administrative jurisdictions.

The mission of the National Association of Hearing Officials is to improve the fairness and effectiveness of the administrative hearing process, thus benefiting hearing officials, their employing agencies, and the individuals those agencies serve by: 

~promoting professionalism;

~offering instruction on sound administrative adjudication practices and procedures;

~providing year-round continuing legal and adjudicative education;

~affording a national forum for discussion of important issues; and

~furnishing leadership concerning the administrative hearing process.

Who would benefit from NAHO membership?  Regular membership is available to anyone who presides over administrative hearings, whether singly or as part of an administrative tribunal such as a board or commission, on any government level (federal, state or local) and regardless of job title--administrative law judge, hearing examiner, administrative judge, hearing officer, commissioner, etc. 

Associate membership is available to those who are involved in administrative adjudication as legal counsel, investigators and case workers who prepare and present the agency's case, and others interested in ensuring a just and qualified administrative judiciary, such as members of law school faculties.

NAHO Annual Conference




NAHO Conference Brochure


Join your colleagues for the 2019 Professional Development Conference in New Orleans. The conference is structured to deliver an array of educational courses on general administrative law topics, ethics, interrupting and reducing implicit bias, best practices for presiding over hearings, decision writing, evidence (basic and advanced), qualifying expert witnesses, resolving managerial issues, hearing officer safety and security and many more timely subjects.

The Conference will be held at the Renaissance New Orleans Pere Marquette French Quarter Area Hotel.  Located in the heart of the French Quarter, the hotel pays homage to the heritage of New Orleans, known for Jazz, Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, and some of the finest dining on planet Earth. Within the hotel you can enjoy historic architecture and savor the French and Southern cuisine of the hotel's New Orleans Coffee and Beignet Company or taste delicious seafood specialties and cocktails at the Oyster Counter and Tap Room.  

There are no longer any rooms available at the host hotel, the Renaissance Per Marquette, at the per diem rate.  NAHO has obtained the same great hotel rate at an "overflow hotel" only one block from the host hotel.  The hotel is the Moxy New Orleans Downtown/French Quarter Area at 210 O'Keefe Avenue. The hotel reservations links will take you to that site:

The French Quarter is the oldest section of the City of New Orleans, founded in 1718. Many of its buildings date from before 1803.  It is home to Jackson Square, the French Market, St. Louis Cathedral, Preservation Hall, the Old Ursuline Convent Museum, the New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park and the Louisiana State Museum.
