Are you interested in volunteer work with the American Academy of Audiology? If so, please submit your name to the volunteer pool.
The Academy has a number of volunteer opportunities, including serving on committees, task forces, special working groups, and participating in short-term projects such as authoring articles, presenting on special interest topics, or serving as a subject matter expert.
Serving on Committees, Task Forces, and Working Groups
Committee terms typically start on October 1 of each year. The charge and goals of the committees are also updated at that time. Most committee terms are three years, and approximately one third of each committee turns over each year. Fellow members of the Academy are eligible to serve on committees as voting members. Many committees also have a non-voting, student member.
Learn more about the current committees and task forces and get involved by reviewing the committee charges.
Ad-hoc task forces and working groups are developed on an as-needed basis with direction from the Academy Board of Directors. If you have a special expertise in a specific topic, please complete the online form and let us know you would be interested in serving as part of one of these groups in the near future. Indicate your areas of expertise and include your most current contact information.
