Working Group on the Future of the AHA 2007

The Working Group on the Future of the AHA had been set up in 2006 to consider and report upon the ways in which the Association might meet the challenges that it will face in the new century. The group met several times to discuss the many suggestions and comments it received from members, including those brought up at the well-attended open forum held during the 121st annual meeting in Atlanta. At its meeting held in New York in October 2007, the group discussed the draft report which it then submitted to Council. At its January 2008 meeting, Council accepted the report. The report has been published on the AHA web site and in the April 2008 issue of Perspectives on History.
