Questions & Answers

Q: How do I sign up?

A: Use our contact form or send an email to

Q: What is the difference between a committee and a project?

A: Committees are broad categories with several projects. The leaders of those projects will serve on the committee. Projects are specific to short/long term goals.

Q: Who is leading the committees and projects?

A: Many will be lead by AIU or AIC board members and leaders. However, we are still filling the leadership roles so if you have time and expertise to lead please let us know.

Q: What’s the time commitment?

A: That depends on the committee or project you choose. Some projects such as the new patient guide will end once it’s completed. Others such as Health Provider Conferences are ongoing so ideally we’d like members who are interested in a longer commitment.

Q: Can I be on more than one committee or work on more than one project?

A: Absolutely, if you have the time, we’d love to have you.

Q: How often will the committees meet?

A: Committees will meet once per month via video conference.

Q: How often will the project team meet?

A: Each project leader will determine how often they need to meet. Emails and other forms of communication will be utilized as well. We will be asking project leaders to provide an outline of expectations for those on their team.  The outlines will be provided before you are asked to make a commitment.
