Incident Resolution Process

To All AMHL Members:

Below please find the link to submit an Incident/Complaint form which will go directly to our Incident Resolution Committee (IRC) for review.  Allow a minimum of 72 hours for the IRC to contact you directly.  After all investigations and meetings, the IRC will send it's recommendations to the AMHL Board of Directors.
