Preface: My program and conference unanimously voted to remain in the ACHA for 2019/20. Our conference also unanimously voted to revisit the discussion again for 2020/21.
I think The CHF is on to something. They have tabled a viable option that is very intriguing to programs like ours. (Our regional location, budget, school support, etc.) It may not be the best option for everyone, but options themselves are good to have. I hope the CHF thrives in 2019-20.
There is a lot the ACHA could improve upon by simply empowering well informed, proactive representatives from EACH faction of their membership and allowing them to decide what is most beneficial for their faction. I think that is the axiom of the CHF. I think the CHF is working towards that, and by creating a direct competitor, forcing the ACHA to do so as well.
Just my thoughts tho, full disclosure I am a few bourbons deep at this point in the day. Happy 4th!
