The House of Delegates (HOD) is the legislative body of the AGD. HOD representatives act on behalf of the members within their constituents during the AGD Annual House of Delegates meeting each year. The number of delegates from each constituent correlates to the number of AGD members within that constituent. The AGD HOD consists of 200 delegates, based on the number of active, retired, and emeritus members within each AGD constituent. Each constituent is entitled to at least one voting delegate. As the legislative body of the AGD, the HOD can amend the AGD Constitution and Bylaws and determine the policies that govern the AGD in all its activities. The Illinois AGD Delegates and Alternates work very hard during the year and at the meeting to represent and meet the needs of our AGD Illinois members.
