The 2022-2023 Call for Volunteers is now open.
To strengthen the informatics field, we’re enhancing the ability of AMIA to serve as the leading voice for informatics professionals. By growing the capacity of the organization and expanding membership, every member will be supported with a robust organization that is nimble in serving evolving needs.
Now is the time for AMIA members to share their passion for and expertise in informatics. Volunteer to serve on a committee for the 2022-2023 term. Committee participation offers members the opportunity to contribute fresh, innovative ideas that grow AMIA and help expand its services. Members who give their time, talent and energy are rewarded with a wealth of high-impact personal relationships, strengthened leadership skills, and the capacity to bring positive change to AMIA.
We are looking for thoughtful, forward-thinking individuals with diverse experience. We invite you to get involved—connect, learn, grow and lead—and bring on the next era in informatics.
