Committee Member Recruitment

ACSN needs your help! Will you be one of the people to raise your hand and join one of our committees?

Becoming a committee member is a great opportunity to lead, grow professionally and work directly with the ACSN board. Each committee has a need for at least a few volunteers. Committee volunteers can expect to devote around 2-4 hours on average each month to their ACSN work, meeting with their committee and collaborating with other ACSN committees and members. This is a chance to continue to sharpen skills you already have or grow in a new area you wish to explore.
