The AIAS works each year to address issues affecting students around the world through our Committees and Task Forces. These groups are made up of dedicated members who bring their diverse perspectives and experiences together and empower one another to lead us toward a healthy, equitable, and sustainable future. In recent years there has been a stronger need than ever for students to speak up and make necessary changes to our communities and our profession. The 2022-2023 Board of Directors is ready to get to work and support our members. The AIAS has to remember what we’ve learned during these difficult times and move into the next year intent on fighting for what we believe in.
This year’s committees are informed by the amazing discussions and content curated by last year’s committees and the goals outlined in the 2022-2024 AIAS Strategic Plan. There is no one way to be a leader, and there are so many opportunities to use your voice and make a difference. No matter what you are passionate about there is a committee for everyone, so please read through the 2022-2023 Committee Charge Packet, as many charges, deliverables, and even some committees have changed.
Joining a committee, taking on a new leadership position, or running for the Board of Directors are all great ways to take action and gain experience. No matter what your leadership journey has looked like, or even if you’re just getting started, we would love to have you and welcome you to join the team!
