Your Society is looking for members interested in becoming involved in its many volunteer committees. Volunteer opportunities exist in all areas, including member communities, education, standards and advocacy.

Volunteering to serve on one of these councils or committees gives you an opportunity to influence your Society’s direction, advance the profession and gain transferable leadership experience.

Visit the ASSP website to learn more about councils and committees. On the website, you can find descriptions for all committee positions including information about the purpose and responsibilities of each role, qualifications, expectations, time commitment and benefits.

To get involved, fill out the brief form on the site to express your interest. All new appointments are made by members expressing their interest through this form on the ASSP website. New committee appointments are made each year with approval from the Board of Directors. Appointment discussions begin May 1.
