An advanced degree in law, business, or health is desirable but not required.

The AAMI search committee has also outlined a number of Year 1 success factors, including identifying avenues that “add value for AAMI’s existing constituencies or could lead to a significant increase in AAMI’s credibility, membership, net income, or improvement in programming.”

The chosen candidate will also be required to build external relationships across the HTM field, provide guidance for the AAMI Foundation, and continue to grow and strategically position the annual conference to reflect the evolving priorities of AAMI members. The new leader must also grow the organization’s plans to address the profession’s aging membership and foster a connection to young professionals.

Applications may be submitted through the Korn Ferry website. The first round of interviews will begin in August.
