The Nominating Committee’s primary function is to ensure the effective and appropriate involvement of AMIA members in the organization through the annual election process. Beginning with the strategic plan, the Nominating Committee decides on the variety of skills and expertise that are desired at the Board table. A central function of the Nominating Committee is to ensure appropriate turnover and diversity among AMIA leadership. It is important that the committee guard against the recycling of a small central core of members in leadership positions by identifying and recruiting candidates from more junior members who have not historically been involved in AMIA leadership positions, as well as from other underrepresented membership groups. The committee reports to the Board.
