The IAHA Board of Directors voted in September 2006 to add attorneys representing life sciences companies as voting members. The IAHA Life Sciences Steering Committee was created, co-chaired by Laura Keidan Martin and Jennie Jendusa Orrico. In January 2008, the Board agreed to fold the steering committee into the IAHA Membership Committee. This committee, among its regular duties, reaches out to attorneys who represent life sciences companies and develops sessions specific to this field.
If you are an attorney in the life sciences field and interested in becoming an IAHA member, please contact Joanne Sommers at 630.276.5506 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
