How do I become more involved in ASRM?
That is a question that I hear over and over again. The answer is really quite simple. If you have a special interest, volunteer to play a role in the activities of a specific Special Interest Group, Professional Group, or even Affiliated Society.
Start small. Volunteer to serve on a committee. If you find the committee interesting, eventually volunteer to chair the committee. I think you will find that the SIGs and PGs are always looking for hardworking volunteers. You won’t need to ask twice!
The Nominating Committee of ASRM takes note of those who have played active roles in the various groups within the Society. That really is what leads to nominations to serve on ASRM committees and eventually on the Board. In my time with ASRM, the one criterion that I have seen the Nominating Committee use again and again is past performance on committees within the Society in determining just who should be nominated.
