ACSM Affiliate Societies

ACSM’s creation of Affiliate Society model allows for large specialty areas of professional interests to be aligned directly with ACSM while being authorized to operate within broadly defined parameters and to have operational and programmatic independence within those parameters. 

While ACSM’s Interest Groups continue to act as more informal communities of professionals with common interests, the Affiliate Society model serves those few professional interest areas where there is a sizeable critical mass of members (and prospective members) who desire a more formal and active role in advancing the specialty area aligned with ACSM.
