Election Frequently Asked Questions

Can anyone run for any open seat?
Seven board seats are allocated for the hospital provider community, two for the affiliate (GPOs/manufacturers/consultants/distributors) community, and one for the Uniformed Services.

How long do I have to be an AHRMM member to run for a board seat?
Interested members need only to have been a member in good standing for one year to run for an open board seat.

If I complete the candidate paperwork and meet the qualifications to run for the ARHMM Board, will I automatically be included on the election ballot?
No. AHRMM limits candidates to three qualified candidates for each open board seat. All potential candidates that meet the qualifying criteria will be reviewed by the Nominating Committee, and if there are more than six healthcare provider candidates and more than three affiliate or military candidates, the Nominating Committee will review and place on the ballot the six healthcare provider, three affiliate, and three military candidates deemed most qualified and whose skills and experience most closely align with AHRMM’s needs at that time.

Who is on the Nominating Committee?
Information on the Nominating Committee, its members and its responsibilities, can be found here.

Besides serving on the national board, what other opportunities exist to serve AHRMM?
AHRMM members can volunteer to serve on committees, which are closely aligned with the AHRMM Strategy Map and help shape the organization. For members who have been active in their local chapter or are passionate about advancing the profession and like to “roll up their sleeves” and “dig into the details,” committees are a wonderful place to start. If you enjoy facilitating a group of volunteers, Committee Chair roles may be for you. Leaders who can motivate, coordinate, and execute Committee agendas are critical to AHRMM’s success. Committees are where the important work of AHRMM gets done! The AHRMM Board set the vision and strategic direction for the organization; committees execute the nuts and bolts work of the organization.
