Join a NASCI Committee
Want to join a group of dedicated professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to help NASCI carry out its mission, goals and purpose? Volunteers are the foundation for NASCI’s growth and its success can be directly attributed to the many members, past and present, who have generously shared their knowledge and expertise.
You can make a difference by serving on an NASCI committee. Each fall (October), committee rosters are reviewed and updated. Committee service is typically a three-year commitment, depending upon the committee. Committees work best with representation across the diverse membership, including Trainees and Early-Career Professionals. All members interested in service are encouraged to sign up.
Participation is limited to NASCI members in good standing. Members may be invited to join committees outside the regular cycle to fill vacancies or provide additional resources as needed. Please watch for the yearly Call for Committee Volunteers. While options may be limited, Staff will gladly explore options for Members who did not sign up through the Call for Volunteers.
