ACPM has a number of different type of volunteer opportunity for interested members. No matter your skill level or time available, there should be an opportunity available for you to lend your talents to ACPM.
ACPM COMMITTEES, SECTIONS & TASK FORCES
ACPM encourages all members to become involved in the College by volunteering on an ACPM Committee, Section or Task Force. Most committees are open to all ACPM members and appointments are typically made in conjunction with ACPM's annual conference, Preventive Medicine. If you are interested in serving on a committee please complete the volunteer interest form and you will be contacted by the appropriate staff liaison. Although all committees are listed, only the ones with openings are currently looking for new volunteers.
All ACPM Committees have participation requirements. To view the requirements, please visit: Participation Requirements.
