Are You Interested in Serving on a Committee?

Committees exist to implement the strategic initiatives and actions of the GBA. Committees are chaired/co-chaired by members of the Steering Committee who report back to the Steering Committee on activities and progress. Participation on a Committee will help professionals within academic medicine grow and learn in their professional roles and develop their leadership capacities.

If you are interested in learning more about serving on a Committee, please email gba@aamc.org

What to expect as a GBA Committee 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;
  • Professional development—go behind the scenes where all the action happens.

2021-2022 Steering Committee

The Steering Committee sets policy for and manages the GBA. Committee Chairpersons and at-large members shall be appointed by the GBA Nominating Committee.

Developing the professional and personal skills of GBA members can be accomplished in a number of ways, such as planning for the GBA Spring meeting and planning other professional development workshops.

GBA Data and Benchmarking Committee - The Data and Benchmarking Committee is charged with advising the AAMC on appropriate and timely data collection and reporting activities. The Committee will help AAMC staff identify data and procedures for collecting and reporting it that are of value to its members and the enterprise generally. The committee will work with AAMC staff to develop mechanisms for educating the membership about the availability and use of bench-mark data. The committee will also develop and prioritize research questions to be included on AAMC surveys and identify target audiences who can benefit from using the data.

GBA Emerging Issues Committee - The Emerging Issues Committee will identify topics and issues that are relevant to GBA members' interests and concerns and determine the best ways to educate and inform members about them. The committee will participate on three moderated conference calls per year with expert speakers on topics identified by the Committee.

GBA Department Administrator Interest Group - The GBA Department Administrator Interest Group is a network of department business managers who broadly share ideas, challenges, best practices, and development opportunities.

Data Driven Academic Medical Centers Work Group - The Data Driven Academic Medical Centers Work Group seeks to be a coordinating source of resources to share knowledge and enable academic medical centers to leverage new and existing data to inform the decisions across its missions, strategic initiatives, and daily operations. This cross-cutting Work Group is led by Chairs coming from the GIR, GBA, and GIP but is open to all members of AAMC community.
