The ACH has a number of subcommittees and other appointments. They are listed below along with their current chairs. All ACH committees and some other activities welcome member participation. It is not necessary to be a member of the Executive Council to serve on a committee.
DHSI bursary awards
The awards decisions are made by the DHSI organizational team, headed by Ray Siemens, in consultation with an ACH liaison.
Outreach & Advocacy committee (formerly Jobs Group)
Flexible numbers; there should be at least three EC members, plus additional non-member volunteers. The ACH Vice President serves as chair of this committee.
Nominations committee for 2012/2013 elections
Five members: President or Vice-President (unless these are running for re-election), Treasurer ex officio (since the Treasurer handles the membership list), and four other members, who shall be current members of the ACH but need not be members of the Executive Council
DH sessions at MLA:
ACH designates one member to this committee. Committee members hold staggered appointments; each member serves a 3 year term, one member rotates off every year; the main responsibility is in one's last year. Appointments begin following the DH conference and run until the conference in the following year. In 2008, the first appointments were made with staggered terms. Thereafter, new appointments will be for three years.
ACH appoints a new member to this committee every three years; our next appointment will be made in 2012.
Membership in this committee is based on the allocation of LLC subscriptions to the constituent organizations. ACH currently designates two voting members to this committee. The ACH treasurer and President serve ex officio.
