IHRSA's bylaws set forth the guidelines for the structure and governance of the Association. They are reviewed regularly and amended as needed by the Board of Directors.View IHRSA Bylaws
Membership Eligibility Standards
Each member ("Member") has the responsibility to abide by the Association's Membership Eligibility Standards, Code of Conduct, and By-Laws. None of these, however, are intended to create new law or substitute for local, state, or federal law, which will always take precedence. IHRSA will assist clubs as much as possible in interpreting these standards, but clubs need to check local and state law, or check with an attorney about any legal questions they may have.
IHRSA Board Service
The IHRSA Board of Directors are an experienced, intelligent team of industry leaders. They are chosen to serve IHRSA in particular and the fitness industry in general by providing guidance, strategic direction and insight that has lasting global impact.
Each year, two to four Board positions need to be filled as existing board members complete their terms of service. This ensures that seasoned board members sit side by side with new ones, providing a balance of ideas that can propel our association to new heights of success. The deadline for applications for the 2022-2026 term was August 13, 2021.
