Call for AHVRP Volunteer Committee Members
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.
