Volunteer for a Committee
Member participation in ACCP committees is vital to the growth and development of the organization. In June of even-numbered years, a Call for Volunteers goes out. Committee participation is a two-year commitment, from September to September, consistent with the change in ACCP Leadership. Committees work best with representation across the diverse ACCP membership, including Students, Trainees and Young Professionals, and so all interested in service are encouraged to apply.
Participation in committees is limited to ACCP Members in good standing, and Members are selected for participation in only one committee per two-year cycle. Members may be invited to join committees outside the regular cycle to fill vacancies or provide additional resources as needed. The Call for 2019 – 2020 Committee Volunteers has been completed and committees have been seated. While options may be limited, Staff will gladly explore options for Members who did not sign up through the Call for Volunteers. Please contact KLevy@ACCP1.org with any questions.
