The SDMS depends on volunteers to accomplish its mission and strategic goals. Volunteer opportunities with the SDMS range from long-term commitments such as committees and task forces to micro-volunteer projects that are shorter in nature.
Committee - A committee consists of volunteers who have agreed to contribute time to a committee's activities for a two-year period. Committees are established based on the needs of the Society and profession. There are currently open committee positions on the Conference Management and Membership Awards & Recognition Committees.
Task Force - A task force consists of volunteers who have agreed to contribute time to a task force's activities for a time period of six months to a year depending on the activity. Task Forces are established based on the needs of the Society and profession.
Micro-volunteerism - A micro-volunteer activity is a task completed in small increments of time and may take a few hours, days, or months to complete, and does not require an ongoing commitment. Volunteers are selected on an as needed basis. Examples of micro-volunteer activities include content development, presentation/lectureship, reviewer/judge, and fundraising for the SDMS Foundation.
Your application for volunteer service will be carefully reviewed and considered. Every attempt is made to accommodate those interested in volunteer service, but no guarantee can be made that every application will result in an appointment. Also note that you must be an SDMS member in good standing to serve as an SDMS volunteer.
NOTE: All current volunteers (committees, task forces, micro-volunteers) must complete a new application to be considered for a new term.
You will be notified of the status of your application by September 1, 2019. Thank you.
