Elevate, ACSM's multi-year capital campaign, supports critical initiatives that will enable the College to better serve its current and future members, enhance and inspire the fields of sports medicine and exercise science, and improve health and health care in the U.S. and globally.

A Message from the Chair

At the 2018 ACSM Annual Meeting, I announced that ACSM is undertaking a capital campaign: ELEVATE The Future of Sports Medicine and Exercise Science.

In addition to exciting conversations in Minneapolis, I will work with you, through surveys and other means, to continue the development and roll-out of the campaign over the next few months.  

This is an  extraordinary endeavor to elevate the future of our organization, the fields and the people we serve. I am honored to chair the ELEVATE campaign! I look forward to collaborating with you as we define and detail the four priority areas of the campaign. If you would like to participate on a campaign committee or in another role, or if you have any suggestions to share please contact me by email.

We – together –  will design this capital campaign to have impact and heightened aims in four key areas:

  • Elevate Science and Discovery

  • Elevate Individual and Population Health

  • Elevate Global Center Impact

  • Elevate Innovation and Technology
