AIHce EXP Conference Program Committee Candidate Application

CPC Selection ​​Process


A well-balanced, cross-representative group of volunteers is vital to the strength of the CPC and to shaping the educational content for AIHce. Toward that end, the following attributes are considered when selecting CPC representatives. 

  • Demonstration of leadership skills and ability to be thoughtful, deliberative and decisive.
  • Ability to:
    • work collaboratively in a group setting 
    • professionally handle differences of opinion with peers
    • speak with “one voice,” supporting decisions once they have been made 
  • Ability to represent the profession as whole, not just one practice area or specialty. 
  • Proven ability to think both long term and strategically as well as short-term and tactically.
  • Ability to screen submissions in a fair, consistent, defensible, and transparent manner.
  • Ability to meet deadlines in a short period of time, especially in the Fall (September-December).
  • Experience as a volunteer in AIHA and/or ACGIH; experience in other, volunteer organizations.
