NEW! ASHI Committee Highlight

Committee Name: Bylaws Committee

Committee Chair: Dr. Catherine F. Klimek, BS CT(ASCP) CHS

Committee Responsibilities:
  • Review and update the ASHI bylaws
  • Ongoing review of applicable bylaws of organizations with which ASHI has deemed status, e.g., CMS, UNOS, NMDP, FACT, etc.
  • Prepare a summary of proposed bylaws changes and distribute them to the membership for comments
  • Update and maintain the ASHI Standard Policies and Procedures Manual (SPPM)
  • Attend the annual committee meeting held in conjunction with the ASHI Annual Meeting whenever possible
Time Commitment:
The time commitment for the Bylaws committee varies each year depending upon the projects before the committee. Generally, a committee member may spend approximately 1 hour, 4 to 6 times a year on a Committee conference call to discuss project updates, in addition to the personal time spent on tasks related to the projects.

1. What is the biggest contribution this committee has made to ASHI and its members?
The biggest contribution made so far this year to ASHI and its members has been the collaboration between the Bylaws Committee and the ASHI Membership Committee in revision of the membership application process. The proposed application process for full membership (new and renewals) is more streamlined and electronic. The proposed auto approval process no longer requires the Membership Committee Chair to review each application.
