Make recommendations for new board members.\r Supervise operations, budget, education and professional development, performance metrics for staff and programs, data management, and personnel.\r Engage volunteers interested in the AAMI Foundation’s work.\r Advocate for and represent the organization at various speaking engagements, graduate schools, philanthropic and educational conferences, and in the media.\r
