Member Task Forces

Along with providing consulting support and guiding contract negotiations, SMEs lead our Member Task Forces. Membership feedback is critical in shaping the direction of our regional contracting decisions. Our Member Task Forces include industry experts in the areas of Imaging, Laboratory, Surgical Services, Food & Nutrition, and Facilities & Construction.

In leading our Member Task Forces, our SMEs weigh the concerns and recommendations of members when pursuing regional contracts. As many SMEs sit on Premier Committees, they are able to protect our regional interests by sharing member insights on a national level.

For more information or if you are interested in participating in our Member Task Forces, please contact the designated SME.
