Committees

The NYS-AIMH offers our membership the prospect to become involved in committees and other volunteer opportunities.  Committees are forming now and include:

  • Development
  • Education and Training
  • Endorsement
  • Membership
  • Communications/Marketing

If you are interested in joining any of these committees, please contact us at reachus@nysaimh.org.

Development Committee

The Development Committee will research possible grant opportunities and organizational partnerships.   They will plan one or more regional fundraising events in 2016, and would welcome your participation.  NYS-AIMH always welcomes private gifts to support our work.

Members of this committee assist in developing and implementing fundraising efforts for the Association.

Training Committee

The Training Committee coordinates and implements conferences, training and educational opportunities sponsored by NYS-AIMH throughout the year.  They also identify existing multidisciplinary training programs offered throughout New York State which support the relational and social/emotional development of infant and young children’s mental health.

All training and education initiatives will identify the IMH Endorsement competencies addressed in the program to ensure that professionals can track their trainings as they relate to the Endorsement competencies.  If there are training topics that would be of interest to you, please email us at reachus@nysaimh.org with your suggestions!

Members of this committee help determine and initiate education and training opportunities for professionals serving children, ages 0-5 and their families.

Endorsement Committee

Members of this committee will assist in reviewing portfolios, communicate with applicants, and review the IMH exams for Levels III and IV. All members of this committee must be Endorsed at Levels III or IV.

For more information about the Endorsement process please contact us at reachus@nysaimh.org

Membership Committee

Our Board members attend meetings and conferences at partner organizations to share the work of our Association and discuss the benefits of the NYS IMH Endorsement.

Members of this committee help spread the word about our Association to professionals and constituents.

Communication/Marketing

This committee is responsible for keeping our membership informed on the latest news and research in our field and helping the Association communicate its mission to professionals in all fields who work with young children and their families and to the public at large.

Members of this committee assist in communicating information about infant mental health issues, research and policy at both the state and national levels.
