In June, the ARHP Nominations Committee will develop a slate of officers and identify volunteers to serve on committees and taskforces for the 2007-2008 leadership year. Volunteering is rewarding, offers a great education, and is an opportunity to meet colleagues across disciplines and geographical regions.
If you’re interested in volunteering, visit www.rheumatology.org/arhp to complete a submission form. Forms received by April 15 have the best chance of consideration for fall appointments but you can volunteer at any time.
We aim for at least one-third of positions to be filled by new volunteers each year, to ensure new energy and talent keep our organization vibrant.
