We have exciting leadership opportunities available to members of two of our Technical Groups:
The positions of Technical Group Chair, Technical Group Program Chair, and Technical Group Program Chair-Elect are open for both of these Technical Groups and we are seeking Full members to serve as candidates to run for these elected positions.
Terms of Service:
- The TG Chair will serve until October 2025
- The TG Program Chair will serve through September 2024
- The TG Program Chair-Elect serves through September 2024 and then becomes the TG Program Chair and serves in that position through October 2025
Technical Group Chairs convene and lead the Technical Group annual business meeting and arrange other events for the TG members. They distribute communications to TG members and ensure that TG activities are being carried out. The TG Chair also represents the TG as a member of the Council of Technical Groups and should join the COTG community forum and participate in COTG discussions and activities.
The TG Program Chair is responsible for overseeing the technical review of proposals submitted for the HFES Annual Meeting. The TG Program Chair-Elect assists the Program Chair with the technical review of papers for the annual meeting and ultimately assumes the Program Chair position.
Some Technical Groups provide awards, organize webinars, distribute newsletters, and maintain their own websites – among other activities. A team of staff in the Washington, DC office provides assistance to Technical Groups – especially with elections and with logistics related to the organization of the annual business meeting.
For more information, please review the Technical Group Handbook.
