2016 AHVRP Call For Leaders: Nomination Process Now Open!

Passionate, professional, visionary leadership is the cornerstone of every successful business and organization.  The 2015 AHVRP Committee on Nominations has the honor and great responsibility to find leaders to promote future growth and success of AHVRP and our profession. We ask YOU to consider an AHVRP leadership role. We Need You.

Serving on the Board and the Committee on Nominations imparts an incredible amount of personal and professional growth.  It increases your ‘bench strength’ and confidence; these roles are career and resume builders.  Please talk to fellow AHVRP members that would be an asset to our organization.  Encourage, inspire, motivate and repeat until they complete their nominations!  Please remember that members must nominate themselves.  You must nominate yourself. 

Each candidate is expected to:

  • Be familiar with the mission and goals of AHVRP
  • Understand and support the relationships between AHVRP and the chapter/VISN leaders
  • Have references with knowledge of the candidate’s management and leadership styles.

Each candidate must demonstrate the following qualities and experiences:

  • Passion for the profession and commitment to volunteerism and the position they are considering
  • Previous leadership experience
  • Prior service on AHVRP or state/chapter committees
  • Attendance at AHVRP conferences
  • Committed and dependable.

Our 2016 slate will consist of two At Large board members, one President-Elect and four Committee on Nomination leaders.  As we all know, often the most competent, capable and ultimately successful volunteers are simply waiting to be asked to serve. 

We are asking YOU to serve. Please share your passion, vision and professional knowledge and submit your nomination today!

Please read the Information Packet on our Call for Leaders and make your nomination today!

Call for AHVRP Volunteer Committee Members

AHVRP committees are developed to assist the association in achieving its initiatives and fulfilling its strategic goals and objectives of setting the standard for volunteer excellence. 


The benefits of serving on an AHVRP committee or task force are many:

  • The opportunity to receive useful background information and data developed by AHVRP and/or the American Hospital Association for use in meeting the committee’s objectives.
  • The opportunity to build a network of other volunteer resource professionals who are involved and interested in the same subjects/issues.
  • The opportunity to learn from other volunteer management professionals.
  • Acknowledgement and recognition for your expertise and contributions from AHVRP and your peers.
  • Preparation for expanded roles and responsibilities in AHVRP Volunteer Leadership.


Committees typically have a board liaison, chair and an AHVRP staff liaison.  The number of members varies according to the committee or task force strategic goals and objectives and charges.

Committee Member Selection

Committee and task force chairpersons will use the information provided by members who complete the online Call for Volunteer Committee Members Survey.   Chairpersons with the help of their respective AHVRP board liaisons may select participants based on the association’s needs, their core competencies, experience, and representation of types of healthcare organizations and/or geographical distribution.  Prior committee participation is not required, because AHVRP recognizes that committees or taskforces are great launch pads for involvement and welcome the participation of new and existing members. The survey will be open and accepting information until Wednesday, April 15, 2015, 5pm (CT). Members will be contacted electronically by AHVRP once a decision was been made regarding committee members. For more details, explore the AHVRP Opportunities for Involvement FACT SHEET.
