Serve on a Committee

Committees play a vital role in ACSM. All members are invited to express an interest in serving on any national committee. However, preference is usually given to ACSM Fellows and those individuals who have been active in the Regional Chapter program. You must be a current ACSM member to serve on a committee. Please understand that it may not be possible to find committee assignments for all who wish to serve. Committee Appointments are done yearly by the ACSM President-elect in February.

Officer & Trustee Nominations 

Per Constitutional requirement, the ACSM Nominating Committee announces a call for nominations for all officer and trustee elections. All nominees must be ACSM Fellows. In keeping with ACSM's policy of rotating leadership among the three areas of interest, the nominees will be from the interest areas indicated on the form. To nominate a member to run for an officer or trustee position, please return the completed nominations-form to Chris Sawyer.  Deadline to nominate is March 1 of each year.

Leadership & Diversity Training Program

The purpose of the program is to mentor and retain underrepresented racial/ethnic minority members by offering three different program levels.  Program participation requires ACSM membership; involvement in ACSM meetings (regional and national) and committees; and pursuit of ACSM professional presentations, publications and fellowship. The program also provides mentors to participants at each level and provides participants with funding to perform the necessary steps to remain involved with ACSM from student member to ACSM Fellowship.
  
Mentoring assignments start at the ACSM Annual Meeting each year and continue throughout the year. To be a mentor you are required to attend the ACSM Annual Meeting and be an ACSM Fellow.

If you are an ACSM Fellow and are interested in being a mentor for the Leadership & Diversity Training Program, please submit the mentor volunteer form below and email it to Chris Sawyer.
