The 2022 nomination process is now open
Member engagement and strong leadership are critical to the success of AMIA, and the AMIA Board of Directors play a critical role in helping to advance the association’s mission.
The 2022 Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for Chair-Elect and four (4) Director positions to help meet the changing needs of AMIA members and to continue to advance the association's strategic plan.
Members are encouraged to self-nominate or recommend other qualified members to nominate themselves.
The Nominating Committee is currently reviewing nominations for Board Chair-Elect and (4) Directors. The position of Board member is the highest volunteer member contribution role for AMIA. Board members have fiduciary obligations that require members to make decisions in good faith, are in the best interest of AMIA, and are financially responsible. The nomination criteria for a Board member balances a mix of experience, age, gender, ethnicity, geographic, and institutional balance.
Expectations and Time Commitment
There are nine board meetings scheduled for 2023. Two meetings are face-to-face. One is in conjunction with the AMIA Informatics Summit and the other face-to-face is held at the AMIA Annual Symposium. Additional conference calls may be requested at any time.
Key Attributes of a Successful Board Candidate
All voting AMIA members in good standing are eligible for election to the Board and Working Groups (regular, retired, life members).
Student members are not eligible to serve on the Board but are encouraged to apply to serve as an AMIA Working Group leader.
The Nominating Committee will meet to prepare the slate of nominees for submission to the AMIA Board of Directors in early August. For more information, please view or download the Governance Manual and AMIA Bylaws.
