Nationwide Policies of the NHAA- Establishing Membership
As the internet is the connection between our clubs, many of the rules pertain solely to the internet.
When posting on the message boards, please refrain from personal attacks or defamation of others.
All chapters in the NHAA must have an open policy towards admittance of new members as well as their vehicles regardless of the condition or the style of the vehicle. The NHAA does not admit clubs that exclude modified vehicles from participation or membership.
While there are a great many car clubs out there, some do not allow hearses or other procars, while others were specifically created to give procars and their owners a place to socialize and meet, but restrict the use of caskets and bar the admittance of hearses that are customized or modified. We do not endorse this attitude of exclusion and discrimination and as such we wish to clearly state that we are open to all hearses, ambulances, flower cars and limousines regardless of their condition. Caskets and special displays are also welcome. Any local club wishing to join the NHAA must have a similar progressive attitude towards these policies.
There are 3 types of membership
Individual-If you as an individual wish to petition for a membership to NHAA you may request an application for yourself by e-mailing the NHAA here You do not need to be associated with any other group to join as an individual.
Citizen Chapters- If you are part of an established local club that wishes to join the NHAA you may petition for membershipby e-mailing the NHAA here. An established club would be one that was started without any affiliation with NHAA but wishes to become a citizen organization. As a club, you must decide as a whole that your club wishes to participate and become a part of NHAA. The NHAA will not dictate policies to you or try to change your local chapter to meet any guidelines that would alter your purpose or operation. The only policies you must observe as a citizen organization are those listed in Nationwide Policies.
If at any time the alliance between a local club and the NHAA becomes unfavorable party, the link may be terminated. While a local chapter may sever the link at any time, should the greater entity of the NHAA wish to separate itself from a local chapter we will hold a hearing at the request of the local chapter.
NHAA Sole Chapters- This is a chapter started solely as an NHAA chapter that is not associated with anyone but the NHAA. To start a chapter you must file a petition with at least 4 other enthusiast in your area. You must construct a working website that is maintained and provides useful information to it's visitors. These forms are available by e-mailing the webmaster here.
Regardless of which type of membership you choose, you or your organization will be given equal consideration in all matters concerning the NHAA and it's policies.
