The 2022 nomination process is now closed

Working groups offer excellent opportunities for young informatics professionals to gain early career leadership experience and for longer-term AMIA members to share valuable knowledge and perspective as leaders.

Nominations for Working Group leaders are managed within each working group. The Nominating Committee will present the final slate to the AMIA Board in the fall.  After the slate of nominees is announced, instructions on voting will be posted on the AMIA Web site.
