AMIA Committees are a vital link to the success of the association. Committees and volunteers help ensure the information and knowledge shared with the membership, public and media is timely and accurate.
AMIA’s volunteer structure is organized around policies and practices that promote ethics and transparency. AMIA aims to take advantage of the expertise and energies of our members and to promote opportunities for deeper membership engagement
AMIA is looking for thoughtful, forward-thinking individuals with diverse experiences. We invite you to get involved and usher in the next era in informatics.
Committee members must be a member of AMIA in good standing. Committee members have the overall responsibility of supporting the AMIA Board of Directors and carrying out the committee charges as set forth by the Board.
Specific composition, terms, roles and responsibilities are maintained in AMIA’s Committee Manual.
Committee members are expected to:
- Support the mission of the organization
- Participate in committee meetings (frequency varies by group)
- Keep committee materials and conversations confidential
- Respond timely to organizational requests
- Support the majority decision
- Be familiar with AMIA’s Conflicts of Interest Policy and AMIA’s Policy Regarding Speaking on Behalf of or Representing the Organization and Volunteer Reimbursement Policy
Committee participation is limited and not all volunteers are able to serve on a committee at the same time. We are looking for members that are diverse in age, race, ethnicity, gender, ability, political beliefs, and sexual orientation. The selection process occurs in November. New committee members are confirmed in early January.
Please note: As part of the application process, you must have a current Conflict of Interest disclosure on file in order to be considered. AMIA revised its conflicts of interest policy to broaden its scope and processes to recognize and manage conflicts of interest among AMIA’s leaders and agents. Please log in as an AMIA member and review and update your prior disclosures or if you do not have any disclosure/s on file please provide.
