Member participation in HCMA committees is vital to the growth and development of the organization. Participation in committees is limited to HCMA Members in good standing, and Members are selected for participation in only one committee per two-year cycle. Members may be invited to join committees outside the regular cycle to fill vacancies or provide additional resources as needed.
Our committee members bring a wealth of experience to the work of our organization. Whether serving on the COE Review Committee, leading a Legislative Advocacy event, or advising the organization on other committee policy topics - supporting and connecting HCMA members is the common core of the HCMA Committee charge.
We encourage you to participate in the HCMA Community programs.
