Education Committee

The Education Committee creates and/or acquires new educational programs and presentations for professionals within the materials management field outside of AHRMM’s Annual Conference (i.e. online education, webinars, teleconferences, learning modules, educational tool boxes, and other learning vehicles). The Education Committee solicits and reviews proposals for new educational offerings and makes recommendations on different topics and modes of delivery. Working closely with the AHRMM staff, the Education Committee identifies future educational trends and makes recommendations on programming to the Board.
