ASHRM Volunteer Opportunities

Call for Volunteers is Now Closed!

Volunteers have the opportunity to share their expertise, grow their network, and enhance their CV by volunteering with ASHRM. The volunteer recruitment survey is now closed. 

The survey includes a tentative listing of ASHRM's 2024 committees and task forces. The final listing may change slightly and other work groups may be formed if needed to respond to emerging trends. Volunteers must be current ASHRM members.

Because we typically have more volunteers than positions open, we need to ensure that those appointed are able to participate. Appointments to committees vary in length from one year to three years. Volunteers actively participate in the work of the group, provide thoughtful input to deliberations, focus on the best interests of ASHRM and its membership, and work toward accomplishing the committee’s goals.
