ACFAS taps into the talent of its members to lead the organization into the future. Every year, the College brings in new volunteers to provide the energy required to bring to fruition the College’s strategic initiatives. We appreciate how valuable your time is and thank you for considering lending your expertise to support ACFAS and our professional community.
This work happens at the committee, task force, educational program faculty, and regional level of the College. ACFAS committees make decisions that advance to the strategic goals of the College and the profession, expand our education programming and deliver important information that members need to remain up to date in our field.
2023 Call for Volunteers
Each fall the College asks for volunteers to serve on its committees and task forces the following year (approximately February to February). Watch your email in late September/early October for this year's call for volunteers.
The College is comprised of eleven committees and task forces. These teams of volunteers bring the strategic plan to life by taking responsibility for certain tactics outlined in the plan and providing guidance and oversight for these projects created by the committees and task forces. If you would like to volunteer, please read the ACFAS Volunteer Requirements and submit your application when they are available in the fall of each year.
Note: New committee volunteers and volunteers for Clinical Consensus Panels or Scientific Literature Review editors will be asked to provide a one-page CV.
Residents: There are limited spots on ACFAS committees for first year residents only. If you are interested, please contact Michelle Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
