    AAMI members interested in giving back to the healthcare technology management (HTM) field have the opportunity to join the association's Technology Management Council (TMC) and Healthcare Technology Leadership Committee (HTLC).

    Nominations are being accepted for openings on the TMC. This group represents the interests of biomedical equipment technicians, clinical engineers, and other HTM professionals. The TMC's work is driven by AAMI's strategic plan and the HTM roadmap.

    Major priorities for the TMC are to strengthen and bolster the HTM field by finding creative ways to promote HTM careers to outside organizations, developing materials to highlight HTM as a desirable profession to students and young professionals, creating education programs to develop the existing workforce, and producing resources to promote best practices.

    AAMI also is accepting applications to fill open positions on the HTLC. This committee seeks to develop the next generation of HTM leaders by nurturing leadership skills among HTM professionals and advancing the professional interests of HTM managers.

    AAMI members interested in serving a three-year term as a TMC or HTLC member can apply using the online applications available on AAMI Connect, AAMI's online networking and discussion tool. 

    Both groups require a commitment of roughly 15 volunteer hours each year. If selected, committee members must:

    • Be or become an AAMI member.
    • Attend quarterly committee meetings (three by phone and one in-person at the AAMI Exchange).
    • Participate in one or more subcommittees.
    • Share news about AAMI and/or committee projects and deliverables with local HTM associations, their employer, and other interested parties.
    • Deliver at least one presentation per year promoting the HTM field at a local middle/high school/college career day, STEM event, boy/girl scout meeting, or other career-related event.
    • Contribute to the AAMIBlog or another AAMI publication at least once during their three-year term.

    Applications are due March 13. To learn more about the committees or the nomination process, contact Danielle McGeary at dmcgeary@aami.org.
