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).
“Joining the TMC or HTLC is a great opportunity to get involved, network, and really make an impact. With a shortage of HTM professionals entering the field right now, the work of these two committees is critical for sustaining its success,” said Danielle McGeary, AAMI’s vice president of HTM. “HTM professionals have so much enthusiasm for the work that they do, and these committees are an ideal way to turn that enthusiasm into action.”
Nominations are being accepted for eight openings on the TMC (six members at large and two members under the age of 35). This 26-member committee 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 roadmap McGeary developed this summer.

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 four open positions on the HTLC (two members at large and two members under the age of 35). This 17-member group 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. Members wishing to apply for a young professional spot should complete the “under 35” application for the committee of interest.
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 Feb. 28. To learn more about the committees or the nomination process, contact Danielle McGeary at email@example.com.
