The Change Request (CR) Submitter

The Change Request (CR) submitter is CMAHC’s most important volunteer and serves a vital role played by any individual who interacts with a public or semi-public aquatic venue in any way. The submitter can be a public health official, an industry professional, a consumer, or a citizen simply interested in making public and semi-public aquatic venues safer.
An individual does not need to be a member of CMAHC to submit a CR or comment on a CR.

Change Request submitters should keep the following in mind:

  • Only 50 CRs can by submitted per person
  • CRs must adhere to CDC’s MAHC Scope, Principles, and Style Guidance.
    • CRs that do not adhere to this will be returned to the submitter for improvements.  The improved CR will need to be resubmitted.
  • Be ready to provide a response to any questions from the TRC CR Facilitator.
  • Understand that the TRC may wish to modify your CR. 
    • If this happens, you will be notified by email from the TRC CR Facilitator. You will have 30 calendar days to respond to any recommended changes to your CR.
Please be aware that the TRC may wish to modify your change request. Geneally, the TRC CR Facilitator will seek out your permission before any modifications are made. If you do not reply within 30 calendar days,  the TRC will move forward with the recommended changes. If you do not approve the recommended changes, the TRC will notate that and move the CR forward as is.
In some rare cases, the TRC agrees with the intent of the CR but disagrees with the specifics. In such cases where the CR Submitter does not agree to changes, the TRC may modify the CR and notate to the voting membership that the modifications were made without the submitter's consent.
