Call for 2017 Committee Volunteers



The NAMSS 2017 Call for Committee Volunteers  is now open! Volunteering to be appointed to a NAMSS governance committee is a leadership opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. So if the time is right in your career, stand up and serve! Being an effective member of one of the NAMSS committees requires certain traits and skill-sets: integrity, responsibility, respect, and a positive attitude. If you see these qualities in yourself and you have the passion to serve your peers, then now may be the time to set a course for your volunteer leadership path. Just as you would your employment career, it is important to map out a plan to get you where you want to be in your volunteerism career.

Below is a listing of current Committees, so look for one that is of specific interest to you. Please review the Volunteer Leader Agreement prior to submitting your application.

Committee members MUST be active NAMSS members, and cannot be subsequently serving as a NAMSS Instructor or on the Board of Directors of a State Association.
