Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just beginning your career GAHE encourages you to become more deeply involved in the Association. Members are encouraged join a committee, follow GAHE on Social Media and network at GAHE events.

Become a Committee Volunteer

GAHE committees and sub-committees capture key directional shifts in member needs and translate those needs into action items for potential development. Committee member input and recommendations enables the Board of Directors to establish effective policies, set meaningful budgets, and exceed membership expectations. In addition to networking and leadership development benefits, committee involvement counts toward FACHE credentialing requirements.
What are qualifications and expectations? All committee roles are for a term of one year (January through December). There is no limit to how many years you actively volunteer on a committee. Individuals must be ACHE & GAHE member in good standing and demonstrate active participation in role that was accepted. Committee chairs welcome knowledgeable volunteers in area of committee focus, demonstration of team work, reliability and active engagement.

What is the time commitment?

Time commitment and responsibilities vary from committee to committee. The average time expected from a committee member is four to eight hours per month. Each committee will hold at least a one-hour virtual meeting per month. Standard committee terms are for a year, beginning January 1 and ending December 31.
