Build Your Leadership Skills With ASSP’s Volunteer Opportunities

Mar 01, 2021

Volunteering to serve on an ASSP committee is a great way to build new skills, meet new people and make a difference in the OSH profession. ASSP is looking for members with diverse experience levels and perspectives who are interested in becoming involved in one of the Society’s many volunteer committees. Opportunities exist in all areas, including member communities, education, standards and advocacy.

Volunteering to serve on one of our councils or committees is an exclusive member benefit that gives you an opportunity to influence our direction, advance the profession and gain transferable leadership experience.

  1. Learn about the opportunities. Visit the ASSP website to learn more about our councils and committees. On the site you’ll find descriptions for all committee positions including information about the purpose and responsibilities of each role, qualifications, expectations, time commitment and benefits.
  2. Raise your hand. To get involved, log in and fill out the brief Leadership Connection form. Help us understand what you’re most passionate about by selecting up to three opportunities and telling us about your interest and related experience. If you’ve submitted in the past, complete a new form to update your interests and experience.
  3. Update your profile. Make sure the information in your ASSP member profile is up-to-date and accurate.
  4. Get connected. New committee appointments are made each year with approval from the Board of Directors. Volunteer leaders and staff work together to evaluate the more than 400 submissions we receive each year. Our selection process helps us match the skills and interests of ASSP members with open opportunities to get involved.

Word of mouth continues to be an important tool in finding leaders. Please share this information with your colleagues who may be interested in getting involved. Appointment discussions begin April 1.
