Volunteer for a Committee
ACCP actively encourages Member participation in committees, which are critical to driving the future of the organization. In August of even-numbered years, a Call for Volunteers goes out, encouraging ACCP Members to submit a Committee Volunteer Form. Committee participation is a two-year commitment, from September to September, consistent with the change in ACCP leadership. Members are permitted to participate in one committee at a time. Members wishing to join committees outside the Call for Volunteers are considered on a case-by-case basis. ACCP strives to balance committees with representation across its diverse base of membership and to include Students where appropriate. Please note that participation in ACCP committees is limited to ACCP Members in good standing.
Please note: As of September 1, 2016, the 2017 - 2018 Committees are seated and any new volunteers will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact KLevy@ACCP1.org with any questions.
