Governing Council

HIMSS Europe is completely independent and is overseen by an independent Governing Council, which helps to steer its strategic direction, providing content expertise and keeping an oversight of the organisation’s activities. It also appoints member-based work groups that have delegated responsibility to assist management in the execution of operational strategies, to support the development and promotion of other HIMSS Europe solutions and services, develop governance roles, procedures and practices to ensure an effective governance and oversight body. HIMSS’ Individual Members are invited to put themselves forward for election as Governing Council members.
