Program Committees: The purpose of each Program Committee is to provide strategic oversight of, and direction to, the assigned programmatic area. In furtherance of this purpose, they:

  • Provide strategic oversight and direction for the products, programs, and services
  • Provide recommendations to the Board of Directors on future initiatives, strategies, and proposed investments
  • Receive input and guidance from the AMPP Global Center Board of Directors about key gaps, desired areas of focus, industry needs and overarching AMPP direction
  • Surface issues that require Board / Executive Staff consideration and action.

*Applying as a volunteer requires you to have your free account set up. Setting up your account is easy and only takes 3 quick steps! 

The Standards Committee provides strategic direction to the AMPP standards program, including:

  • ensuring effective and efficient development of standards and procedural quality
  • maintaining a robust new business development plan
  • developing recommendations for improving the AMPP Standards Program

In addition to the general program committee qualifications listed below, Standards Program Committee candidates should:

  • understand how standards are used in the design, manufacture, test, inspection, maintenance, and certification of products and processes, including the roles that industry, owners, government, and regulatory agencies play
  • understand standards development processes (both by voluntary consensus bodies and in-house company programs)
  • demonstrate broad technical understanding, including emerging trends and technologies
  • possess program management skills, including the ability to set metrics to drive desired behaviors
  • have knowledge of or relationships with priority industry sectors for AMPP growth

The Standards Program Committee currently prioritizes volunteers from outside of the USA and individuals with experience in industries outside the legacy organizational focus.


  • General understanding of AMPP’s governing documents and organizational structure.
  • Leadership skills, such as, the ability to achieve consensus, team building and facilitation, and the ability to set achievable strategies and goals.
  • Ability to think and act strategically.
  • Ability to maintain confidentiality.
  • Reflect the global nature of the organization.


  • If selected, must sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA). 
  • If selected, must serve one program committee per term. Overlap of your service term on two or more committees concomitantly is not permitted.


The time commitment will vary between committees. Generally, applicants should expect quarterly meetings of the full committee work occurring between meetings. Almost all committee meetings will occur virtually, so as to enable greater global participation and lower the financial burden of travel. Committee Chairs may decide to hold an in-person meeting, yet it is expected that all meetings will allow virtual participation.
