Issues & Legislative Committee

The Issues & Legislative Committee reviews and understands the regulatory, environmental, quality of service and standards issues that impact the ability of the health care supply chain profession to achieve performance excellence from a cost, quality and outcomes perspective. Each member of the Issues & Legislative Committee will have a specific topic, agency or organization to monitor and report on during committee meetings. Each member will work with the intent of informing and advising the committee chair, staff liaison and AHRMM Board of pertinent issues and legislation and initiate strategic alliances as it relates to their topic or agency, drafting recommendations and position statements for AHRMM relative to these issues and legislation. This committee may make recommendations directly to the education committee for program content. The committee ensures activities align with the AHRMM Strategy Map.
