CALL FOR 2023 COMMITTEE VOLUNTEERS

​The NAMSS Call for 2023 Committee Volunteers is now open. 

Volunteering to be appointed to a NAMSS governance committee is a leadership opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. If the time is right in your career, stand up and serve! Being an effective member of one of a NAMSS committee requires certain traits and skill-sets: integrity, responsibility, respect, and a positive attitude. If you see these qualities in yourself and you have the passion to serve your peers, now may be the time to set a course for your volunteer leadership path. Just as you would your employment career, it is important to map out a plan to get you where you want to be in your volunteerism career. Application deadline is August 26, 2022

Below is a listing of current Committees; look for one that is of specific interest to you. Please review the Volunteer Leader Agreement prior to submitting your application.
