As the professional membership society for the sleep field, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine relies on the involvement of members who volunteer their time and expertise to help the AASM improve sleep health and promote high quality, patient-centered care. Throughout the year the AASM offers a variety of opportunities for members to become involved on a committee or task force, as course faculty or chair, and in positions of leadership.
Current volunteer opportunities are listed below. Make a valuable contribution to the AASM and help advance the field of sleep medicine by volunteering!
Expand your professional knowledge, network with colleagues and contribute to the sleep medicine field by volunteering to serve on an AASM standing committee. A diverse slate of committees enables you to engage your professional interests, and the potential appointment of several new committees in 2017 may increase the opportunities available. Service as a committee member is a one-year appointment with a maximum of a three-year consecutive term, and it requires participation in monthly conference calls and collaborative involvement on projects that meet the committee mandate. Reports are sent to the board of directors on a quarterly basis.
The AASM invites qualified members to nominate themselves to be considered for positions that will be opening in 2017 on the AASM Board of Directors and AASM Nominating Committee.
