Home       Our Members      Committees

IHA relies on our committees to help shape our programs and drive our success as an organization. These groups give our members a voice on vital issues that impact our work and the future of healthcare. Made up of leaders from across the healthcare industry, they meet throughout the year to have discussions, tackle problems, and make decisions about our AMP programs, Symphony Provider Directory, and other IHA initiatives.

Governance Committee
