Volunteer: Committees and Task Forces

Get involved, join our team of dedicated volunteers!

AHA, Inc. is very lucky to have such dedicated board members, faculty, and staff but it takes a community to be a leader in the industry. We wanted to share with you, how to connect with our key committees and task forces. We have included a list of the committee/task forces and their chairs. If you have ideas for feedback please feel free to contact these individuals. AHA, Inc. is a membership organization and these individuals are leading projects to develop or update tools for you, our members. Our community is made up of members who become volunteers.  We do require current membership, a letter of interest, and a resume which can be sent directly to the AHA, Inc. staff at: [email protected]
