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 are done yearly by the ACSM President-elect in February.
