AHC Emerging Leaders Program 2023-2024


Thank you for considering our Emerging Leaders Program!


The AHC Emerging Leaders program was developed to allow students and new professionals to participate in AHC activities, receive mentorship, and connect with professional networking opportunities.


Emerging Leaders are selected to serve from July to July of each AHC fiscal year. Master’s level students, doctoral level students, and new professionals (having graduated in the past year) will be selected as AHC emerging leaders. Recipients must be an AHC member at the time of application. Emerging Leaders choose an area of interest within the division and receive mentoring related to that area. Emerging Leaders will provide a minimum of 50 hours of service to an AHC committee, project, or task over the course of the year, and they will be assigned a mentor with whom they will connect each month. Emerging Leaders will also have opportunities to learn the responsibilities associated with serving in elected leadership positions within AHC. They will also receive FREE conference registration for the AHC conference for the year they are an Emerging Leader.


Emerging Leaders will be featured in our newsletter and recognized at the annual AHC conference.


Please email the Emerging Leaders Program Co-Chairs at ahcemergingleaders@gmail.com with questions. Emerging Leaders Program Co-Chairs are Drs. Amy Barth and Caroline Perjessy.


Interested applicants should submit their application to ahcemergingleaders@gmail.com by December 1, 2022.
