Volunteer Opportunities

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. Please understand that it may not be possible to find committee assignments for all who wish to serve.

Committee appointments for 2016 will be finalized in March of 2016.  The interest form for 2017 is below.

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

Mentor Volunteer Form
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. For more information on the program, click here.
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.  

Regional Chapter Service

Regional service is an important stepping stone to national service. Volunteering at one of ACSM's 12 Regional Chapters provides excellent networking and professional growth opportunities as well as service points required to become an ACSM Fellow.
