|Committees and Councils|
ATS committees are divided into two groups: Committees of the ATS Board of Directors, and Committees open to all members of ATS. Participation in Member Committees is always welcomed and encouraged by all ATS members in good standing.
ATS Board Committees
Appointed by the President, this committee is charged with
overseeing operations of the Society between Board of Director meetings.
Committee members include the President, Chairman, Treasurer, Immediate Past
President, Membership Committee Chairman, and other Board Members appointed by
the Board to this function. The Executive Committee meets monthly by
teleconference, or more frequently as needed.
Chaired by the Treasurer, the Finance Committee meets
monthly by teleconference to oversee the fiscal condition of the Society and
make recommendations to be Board of Directors about spending, raising funds,
and other related issues. Members are appointed by the Board.
Chaired by the Immediate Past President, this committee
deals with issues of By-Law amendments, appointments and election of new Board members, and other issues
related to the legal governance of the Society. Members are appointed by the
Legislative and Policy Committee (LPC)
The LPC discusses and directs ATS’s legislative issues, goals and
strategy. The group evaluates proposed legislation and regulations that may
favorably or adversely affect trauma professionals and disseminates key
information to the membership for edification or action. Membership of the Committee is comprised of both members of the Board and ATS members.
The Membership Committee meets monthly by teleconference to maintain and increase ATS members in all categories. Chaired by the Board's Vice Chairman, the Membership Committee is open to all ATS members in good standing who want to contribute to the vitality of ATS. The committee, assisted by ATS staff and Board members, focuses on efforts to recruit and retain its membership base.
ATS Ad-Hoc Committees and Councils
The ATS has seven divisions, the membership units that focus on the fulfillment of the Society’s mission. The Council assists Divisions in coordinating and providing educational programming, project funding opportunities, membership recruitment, networking and mentoring at the local level. The Council also works to expand the presence of these Divisions to other states around the country.
