Afraid you don’t have the time? 

Committees meet monthly on average for a total time commitment of less than four hours a month. You can attend either virtually or in person. 

Each committee has been assigned an experienced Staff Liaison who will support you in learning more about ACS governance, schedule and help pay for travel, and help you participate in leadership training.
