How to get more involved at AACE

Join an AACE Committee

Engaging as a member of one of our committees, subcommittees, task forces or workgroups provides you with an opportunity to pursue professional passions, connect with colleagues and contribute to the advancement of AACE and endocrinology in a meaningful way. Our committees are distinct communities within AACE which serve as important forums for the exchange of information and ideas.

Talented volunteers help AACE achieve our objectives and provide valuable leadership. As a result, our community benefits from the knowledge and generosity of their colleagues. Below you'll find a list of the committees for this year and next.

Become an Expert Volunteer for AACE — Join a Disease State Network

The purpose of these volunteer networks is to provide pools of experts for AACE to draw upon to serve as physician liaisons, faculty or program editors for AACE educational programs and authors or reviewers for AACE white papers and guidelines. The Disease State Networks also oversee the AACE disease state resource centers and incorporate past committees aligned with these disease state networks.

AACE members can apply to multiple DSNs, with the understanding that they may be asked to serve as an expert volunteer for AACE in their areas of choice. Fellows and international members are welcomed and encouraged to apply:

Learn the Criteria to Volunteer on a Committee

All current AACE community members are invited to select up to three committees for which you would like to be considered, and requests will only be accepted during the annual application and review period. Engaged and Informed community members may volunteer to serve on up to six disease state networks, at any time during the association year.

What are the criteria for committee member appointments?

AACE community members are appointed to committees based on background and interest in a particular field or area of practice and the skills needed to contribute to the committee’s charge(s).

Candidate submissions are reviewed by AACE’s President-Elect with input from the committee chair and AACE’s Executive Committee and Board of Directors; the number of selections made are based on the number of vacancies available for each committee.

Because membership on some committees is limited but in high demand, committee appointments can occasionally be competitive. Thus, you are encouraged to select up to three committees for which you would like to be considered during the application process to allow for placement with a group that will satisfy you personally and professionally.

To provide opportunities to interested members and increase member engagement, participation is limited to two committees per member per association year. Subcommittees and task forces do not count toward the two-committee maximum.

What type of commitment is required?

Committee appointments are one (1) Association year in length and run from January 1st to December 31st. Appointments will be reviewed annually. Task force members will continue to serve until the group’s charge is met.
