Committees & Volunteer Units
Benefits of Volunteering
Volunteers are the lifeblood of an association. In addition to benefiting the association, serving as a volunteer reaps both personal and professional rewards and allows you to share your expertise with other members, volunteers, staff, and experts. Participation on most committees provides professional development contact hours. We encourage you to get involved!
Types of Volunteer Units
In addition to the Board of Directors, we have many volunteer units that assist in accomplishment of goals outlined in the strategic plan.
Committees have regular ongoing responsibilities as defined by their Committee Charter. Individuals serve for two years and may be reappointed.
Task forces are formed as needed to accomplish special projects. Task Force members serve for the duration of the project and disband once the work is completed.
Becoming Part of a Volunteer Unit
Volunteers are selected through a “Call for Volunteers” that is sent to all AMSN voting members outlining available opportunities.
Our annual Call for Volunteers takes place in late summer/early fall in advance of the January 1 start of the Fiscal year, but opportunities occasionally arise throughout the year.
