Purpose: Ensure that AMC research projects meet member needs.


  1. Provide guidance to AMC’s research staff on potential projects by suggesting research projects, and periodically reviewing projects before they are released to the membership.
  2. Assist AMC’s research staff in gaining member participation in surveys and other research methods.

Membership: Open to all AMC members, including commissioners and staff. Recommended up to 10 members with geographic balance.

Term limits: All committee appointments will have two year terms, with up to three terms available per member, unless otherwise specified. Initially, some appointments will be for one year, so that the rotation of membership on committees is staggered.

Attendance: Committee participation is critical. Therefore, if a member misses three meetings in one calendar year, they can be removed from the committee by the association president and replaced with a new member.

Meetings: Meets at least once per year in person, but primarily by phone and/or Go-To-Meeting. Reimbursement as outlined in the AMC Reimbursement Policy. (Note: There is no travel reimbursement or per diem for conference calls, ITV, or computer based meetings, or for meetings held in conjunction with AMC conferences.
