Governance

Committees

Committees represent important core work areas and core business functions relevant to AAIM and its founding members. AAIM and the founding member associations maintain series of standing and ad hoc committees, task forces, and work groups.

Each committee will be populated with a balance of volunteers representing the alliance's constituent organizations. This balance reflects physician and non-physician representation, institution type, academic title, gender, geography, ethnicity, tenure in organization, and experience/expertise in committee work area.

Volunteer

AAIM holds a call for committee volunteers each spring. Any volunteer who is not placed is added to the committee volunteer waiting list for consideration should an opportunity become available. For more information about serving on an AAIM or founding member association committee, please contact the AAIM office at (703) 341-4540 or contact membership services.
