AAMI Seeks Volunteers to Join HTM Groups



Here’s your opportunity to give back to the healthcare technology management (HTM) community!

AAMI is seeking applications for membership on the association’s Technology Management Council (TMC) and Healthcare Technology Leadership Committee (HTLC), two groups dedicated to ensuring a bright future for the HTM field. During their three-year terms, TMC and HTLC members HTM participate in quarterly calls, join an AAMI subcommittee, give a yearly presentation promoting careers in HTM, and contribute to an AAMI publication.

“Being part of the HTLC and TMC gives HTM professionals a meaningful way to give back to the HTM community while being able to network with some of the HTM field’s brightest leaders,” said Danielle McGeary, vice president of HTM at AAMI. “I encourage you to apply so that your voice will be heard.”

Technology Management Council

AAMI’s Technology Management Council (TMC) represents thousands of biomedical equipment technicians, clinical engineers, and other professionals who manage and service medical technology around the world. The TMC advances and promotes the HTM profession to others in healthcare and to the public at large, provides networking opportunities for its members, and develops career and technical resources for local HTM associations, healthcare facilities, manufacturers, and other professionals.

Requirements:

  • Must hold a current AAMI Membership.
  • Attend quarterly TMC meetings (three by phone and a June meeting that occurs at the AAMI Exchange)
  • Participate in one or more subcommittees on the TMC.
  • Share news about the AAMI/TMC projects and deliverables with local HTM associations, their employer, and other interested parties.
  • Deliver at least one local presentation per year promoting the HTM field (at events such as middle/high school career day, STEM Events, boy/girl scout events or to college students.) Members are asked to take and share pictures from the event through AAMI social media platforms.
