Current Projects in Development:

Student Chapter Guide (Jen O’Leary)
A new resource that will outline the steps for applying to become an AMIA student chapter, initial steps setting up after approval from the AMIA Board, and tips on maintaining a strong student board and diverse activities. Expected to be posted in 2017.

AMIA Conference Online (Dinah Handel, Kristin Lipska, Erwin Verbruggen, Co-Leaders)
This is a new project as of 2016 exploring options for putting new conference presentations and documentation up online.

Networking & First-Timer Event (Casey Davis, Chair)
The Mentorship Sub-committee will consist of 4-6 AMIA members who will administer the event. This event brings together students, early professionals, first-timers and seasoned AMIA veterans and leaders for pre-conference networking, meet-and-greet with AMIA leaders, mock interviews, and a resume review! This informal outreach effort helps newcomers make the most of their time at the AMIA conference and provides professional development opportunities for students and early professionals.

Student Chapter List-Serv
The committee is currently exploring the need for a Student Chapter list-serv.

Past Projects:

Student Mixer (AMIA Conference)
The committee hosted the first student mixer at the Portland, OR conference in 2015. It is now an annual conference event for students to meet and mix with each other as well as select professionals in AV archiving.

Online Continuing Education Task Force (Linda Tadic and Lance Watsky Co-Captains)
The role of the Online Continuing Education Task Force is to provide the AMIA Board with advice regarding the development of content (topics, technology, speakers, etc) for online webinars or videos.This task force has accomplished its initial goals (see AMIA Online) and is exploring the development of further content.
