Committee on Governance (COG)
The Committee on Governance (COG) is one of several advisory committees of the AHA Board. The COG represents AHA’s trustees by participating in the AHA’s advocacy, policy, and resource development, with a particular focus on strategic opportunities.
Hospital and system trustees who serve on the AHA board are ex officio members of this committee.
Leadership Development Committee (LDC)
The COG’s Leadership Development Committee (LDC) serves as the nominating committee of the COG and is comprised of trustees who have served on the COG or one of AHA’s Regional Policy Boards (RPB). The LDC identifies and recommends trustees for participation in AHA governance, policy development and field leadership opportunities.
