Expectations and Responsibilities for Participation on a GIP Subcommittee

What to Expect as a GIP Subcommittee Member:

  • Active participation in a monthly 1-hour conference call;
  • Follow up tasks between each call that could require anywhere from 1–3 hours of time per month.  This is not routine and tends to be more intensive 2–3 months prior to the annual spring meeting or professional development workshop depending on the Subcommittee chosen.  Some months there is no work required;
  • Attendance and participation in annual in-person meeting which usually takes place during the Annual GIP/GBA Spring Meeting; and
  • Opportunity to be a part of the “popular group” the “in crowd”—behind the scenes where all of the action happens!

Membership Inclusion and Engagement Subcommittee

The GIP Membership Inclusion and Engagement Subcommittee is responsible for fostering a diverse, inclusive, and engaged membership. The Subcommittee is committed to providing a welcoming environment where each GIP member can benefit from the highest principles of openness and integrity.  The Subcommittee works to increase active participation from both new and veteran members from varied institutions, ensures that all institutions are represented in the GIP, strengthens the network for the planning community, and encourages members with various levels of expertise, experience, and insights to help inform and guide the Group’s activities and resources.  The Subcommittee strives to diversify the GIP membership base to be inclusive of planners across the entire professional spectrum and to encourage active participation and contributions in Group meetings and activities. The Subcommittee also seeks to underscore the importance of planning within the larger AAMC community.

Subcommittee members are responsible for developing networking opportunities, targeted email outreach and marketing efforts, connecting with new and veteran members, encouraging collaboration within the GIP membership and across the larger academic medicine community, and administering the GIP Distinguished Award program.

  • Implementing strategies to encourage medical schools and teaching hospitals that do not have representatives in the GIP to appoint a member;
  • Sending “Welcome” letters to new members encouraging involvement in one of the three subcommittees;
  • Designing and supporting New Member Navigator Program during the annual meeting.  The program welcomes first time/new attendees to the GIP spring meeting and engages new members early and provides a way for veteran members to stay involved by helping to facilitate the program. With assistance from AAMC representatives, organize the newcomer’s breakfast including identifying navigators and pairing with self-identified newcomers, seating arrangements, and initial and follow-up correspondence;
  • Providing regular (quarterly) updates on GIP activities; and
  • Encouraging “liaison” relationships from representatives to other AAMC professional groups.

Activities include developing webinars, teleconferences, and online resources as well as planning the biennial GIP Symposium.
