ASHI Committees

Our volunteers work conscientiously to advance ASHI’s strategic initiatives through their leadership and dedication to advancing the science, education and application of immunogenetics and transplant immunology. ASHI committees allow you the opportunity to exchange ideas with peers, build a robust network, and expand your professional development opportunities.

Committee positions are available for a term of three years and are open to members who are in good standing. Positions are usually filled two months prior to the annual meeting each year and on a rolling basis as needed.  Should you desire, you can choose more than one committee.

Micro-volunteering opportunities are short-term, low time commitment volunteer activities.

WHO: Open to all current members of ASHI. Ideally suited for first-time volunteers!


WHAT:
 These positions vary in nature. Examples include writing an article for the ASHI Quarterly, posting to the online Forums, helping at the annual meeting or promoting the value of ASHI membership on Social media. The micro-volunteering opportunities are organized by committee as bullet points.

WHEN:
 Applications are accepted year round, however most positions will be filled in the months leading up to the annual meeting (June – August). Committee leaders will reach out to interested volunteers on an as-needed basis.

WHY:
 Enhance your CV with volunteerism and connect with your ASHI colleagues while maintaining flexibility in your busy schedule.

HOW:
 Complete the online Volunteer Form to tell us your preferred areas of service. The committee chair for your selections will contact you as opportunities arise.
