Title: Selection of committee chairs
Post by: kgs on September 22, 2019, 02:19:31 PM
I hopped into this part of the Forum with a question originating from my work in a completely different organization (a commission for a public authority).

How are AHA committee chairs selected? Are they appointed by the chair or vice chair, elected by the committee on an annual basis, or some other means? This commission has very little documented governance procedure (to address this, I am now chairing a committee on establishing standard operating procedures) and the AHA seems in some ways closer organizationally than other associations I belong to.

The Governing Committee does elect the chairperson(s) for each of the subcommittees each year. Those chairpersons aren't necessarily members of the Governing Committee. Any AHA member in good standing can sit on subcommittees.

Thanks, that is helpful!
