Not quite ready to throw your hat in the ring? 

We encourage all of our members to participate, no matter what the level.  Your input is valuable to the Chapter.  Here are a couple of things to consider:

  • Want to see how the Chapter works?  Come to an Executive Committee meeting.  They are typically held the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 10:30-11:30 am.  It’s open to all members, so come check it out!
  • No previous committee experience is required to serve on the Executive Committee.  We all bring different experiences to the table.  Add your voice and help us make the Chapter even better.
  • Got questions?  Talk to us!  Any of the current and past Executive Committee members are happy to discuss their positions with you.  They can even set up shadowing opportunities so that you can get a feel for the position.
  • In addition, the Chapter has a number of non-elected positions that participate in Executive Committee meetings.  These non-elected positions are an opportunity to get familiar with the workings of our Chapter and contribute to our success without having to commit to an elected position.  If this is something you are interested in please contact Chapter President, Ashli Sturgill, at president@sj.assp.org for more details.

Getting engaged and involved with ASSP in a leadership capacity is a rewarding experience AND a meaningful way to give back to your profession while expanding your network!
