Volunteer to Serve on an Academy Committee

The call for committee volunteers for 2021-22 has now closed. Appointments will be announced in the latter half of October.


Thank you for considering volunteering for an Academy committee or subcommittee; our organization would not be enjoying our current success without the talent and dedication of over 200 Academy committee volunteers.

Only current Academy members may serve on a committee or subcommittee. So please note that the Executive Office verifies membership status in April and lapsed members are automatically removed from committee appointments; please remember to renew your membership on time.

You may view the list of current committee appointments here.

Except for the Annual Meeting and Education Committees, the appointments for which are stipulated in the bylaws, you are welcome to volunteer for any and as many committees and subcommittees as you wish. For each that you apply, you are asked to describe your interest in serving on the selected committee (i.e., why are you applying?), and comment on any experience and/or skills you possess relevant to service (including prior history with the committee).

If you have any questions about the work of a committee/subcommittee please contact the respective chair(s) prior to applying to serve.

We regret that, due to the high number of volunteers that apply, it is possible you may not be selected for your preferred committee/subcommittee choices.

The application deadline is 11:59 PM EDT on Monday August 9, 2021 and will not be extended.

To help keep this complex process manageable, applications for Academy service are no longer accepted outside of the online application process; if you are unable to apply by the deadline this year, please try again next year.

Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering for an Academy committee/subcommittee.
