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.
This work happens at the committee, task force, educational program faculty, and regional division level of the College.
As a member of the College, you have the opportunity to get involved, grow yourself in your career as a foot and ankle surgeon, and lead ACFAS by volunteering. There are a few ways to get involved:
2017 Call for Volunteers. The 2017 Call for Volunteers is completed and committees are being formed. Watch This Week@ACFAS and Update in the fall for information on the 2018 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.
ACFAS Committees and Task Forces are as follows:
Volunteer to Instruct an ACFAS Education Program
The ACFAS educational program committees have expanded the scope of topics at our annual scientific conference and surgical skills courses. Instructors are needed to lead these new courses and sessions.
Volunteer as an Officer of a Regional Division
ACFAS invites all members to get involved in their regional division and support the profession at the grassroots level. The 14 ACFAS Regional Divisions offer the opportunity to connect with other members through local seminars, meetings and labs. Regional divisions also offer scholarships and grants to students and residents. Interested in volunteering? For more information, contact the Division President in your area.
