2016-2018 Committee Members:
Amanda Clark Tanruther, MFA, Chair
Advisor: Sarah Needham-Beck, MSc
The Student Committee was first considered in 2005 at a new member 'Meet-and-Greet' with the IADMS Board of Directors during the 15th Annual Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden. Several of the attendees were students. One of these, Edel Quin, suggested it would be helpful to have a committee dedicated to the needs of the student population. The Board agreed, and charged her with the task of founding the committee. Along with Shantel Ehrenberg, Edel invited several prominent student members to serve on the new committee. The first two years were spent determining its aims and objectives, laying the foundation for proposed initiatives, and establishing the Student Committee as an indispensable facet of IADMS. Today the Student Committee works closely with members of the IADMS Board and other key members of the Association to ensure that the outlook and needs of student and early career members are understood and met wherever possible. The Student Committee hopes to continue to develop its supportive network and increase outreach to this population.
