AAIM Call for Volunteers for Committees and Task Forces

The deadline to submit an application for  FY 2021 committees and task force submitted was Wednesday, July 22, 2020.

Applicants are required to:

  • Be current members in good standing (i.e., your institution’s dues have been paid for FY 2021 membership no later than September 1).
  • Have maintained membership for at least three years.
  • Have attended at least two Alliance or association meetings in the last four years.
  • Respond promptly to requests for information and status emails; selected volunteers who do not respond to confirmation emails will lose their opportunity.
  • Understand that the Alliance is committed to providing more members more opportunities to serve. As a result, members may hold only one elected or appointed role per year; current council members are not permitted to apply to serve on committees and task forces unless they are willing to step down; committee members who served in FY 2020 are able to volunteer but are less likely to be selected or may be invited to serve for less than the full term to give other members an opportunity to participate.
  • Complete the application form—which asks three questions about interest and experience—no later than Wednesday, July 22. Uploading a CV or resume is optional.
