Overarching Goals of the Apprenticeship Program

The AII Assembly’s Apprenticeship Program is designed to provide early career AII Assembly members with an opportunity to be directly involved in guiding the future of ATS. Apprentices may serve with either the Program or Planning Committee (descriptions below). Under the mentorship of a committee member, Apprentices will get a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the operations of the AII Assembly while developing skills for evaluation of committee applications and development of committee projects. Committee Apprentices may have the opportunity to ‘graduate’ into full Committee membership in the year following Apprenticeship.

Description of Program Committee

The Program Committee organizes the AII content for the International Conference .

Program Committee Apprentices participate in the process of designing the International Conference content, learning to evaluate abstract submissions and program Conference sessions.

Description of Planning Committee

The Planning Committee is charged with shaping the long-term strategy of the assembly, generally through soliciting and sponsoring projects including clinical practice guidelines, position papers, and workshops benefitting the Assembly.

Planning Committee Apprentices will learn to provide evaluations and reviews of Committee project applications. Apprentices may have the opportunity to assist with the development of accepted project proposals.
