Volunteer Opportunities

APSIH depends upon its member volunteers to carry out its mission. Without members’ commitment and dedication, it would not be possible to conduct our activities, including the development of standards, guidelines, educational programming; and awarding research awards and scholarships

There are a number of ways to become involved in APSIH:

Board of Directors:  APSIH is governed by a 9-member board of directors elected by the members.  A new board is installed October 1st of each year.  Detailed information can be found in Board of Directors’ Position Descriptions, Competencies and Qualifications.

Committees:  APSIH committees plan and implement a variety of the different programs.  Most committees are appointed in the Winter and serve from November 1st – October 31st of each year.  Committees are organizing graduation ceremony, bi-annual cultural conferences and social events. If you are interested in being considered for a committee, please express your interest by sending your information to support @apsih.org.

Task Forces:  In addition to committees, the APSIH president may appoint task forces during the year for narrowly defined purposes, such as developing and improving APSIH website, working on APSIH monthly newsletter, or assisting in the development of a new program or publication.  Task force terms vary depending on their purposes – they may be short-term (a few months) or long-term (more than one year).  If you are interested in being considered for a task force, please express your interest and expertise by sending your information to support@apsih.org.
