The AIHA volunteer community is the lifeblood of the Association and the first line of defense in achieving our mission and vision. Our volunteers work hand-in-hand to support the:

  • facilitation of networking and information exchange among members
  • development of products, services, and activities for educational purposes
  • development of guidelines and standards for good practice
  • development of statements to contribute to public policy debates
  • collaboration with other allied organizations

AIHA’s Board of Directors, volunteers, members, and staff conduct the business of the Association with respect for diversity of opinion, transparent and open communication, and with due consideration of each member’s limited volunteer time.

Get a Mentor... Be a Mentor
No matter where you are in your career, the right mentor can energize you and provide counsel when you need it. And when you mentor others, exposing them to otherwise inaccessible experiences, you can accelerate their careers and help them succeed. Mentors earn CM points!
