Call to Service

Dear SSH Members,

I would like to take this opportunity to invite all members of the Society who have expressed interest in financial planning and oversight to apply for the one open position on the Finance & Audit (F&A) Committee. The F&A Committee is comprised of members who represent a spectrum of expertise and experience in healthcare simulation, including financial management.

The SSH bylaws specify the role of the F&A committee:

“The Finance and Audit Committee shall be responsible for developing the annual Society budget, and reviewing and authorizing internal and external financial audits as required by applicable laws or as otherwise deemed necessary to effectively provide oversight for the Society’s financial status and integrity. The Finance and Audit Committee shall provide financial reports, recommendations, and guidance to the Board of Directors.”

If you are interested in becoming a member of the F&A Committee, I request that you include a brief, focused CV (<300 words with your online submission) to convey your interest in serving as a committee member.  The term of service is three (3) years. Members of the F&A committee should plan to attend three (3) face-to-face meetings per year.  For 2017 one meeting will occur during IMSH and the dates for the other two meetings are April 28 and 29 and October 20 and 21. In addition, there will be three (3) or four (4) telephone meetings that are not yet scheduled.

Please email any requests, comments or questions to aburtnick@ssih.org or to combscd@evms.edu.
