Advocacy Committee

AMIA’s Advocacy Committee was transitioned to a Board Committee in 2018.

 

The Advocacy Committee strives to develop AMIA’s advocacy role, determining for what, when and how AMIA should make its voice heard – and, conversely, when it should stay silent – in order to increase public awareness and assert the principles and standards of moving image archiving.

The Advocacy Committee discerns and assesses issues on which an AMIA stance is needed, and prepares and recommends appropriate statements, strategies and courses of action to the Board of Directors. As appropriate, it collaborates with other AMIA Committees and with other professional organizations in these tasks.
