MEMBER VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
All organizations flourish with active and dedicated member volunteers. We invite you to grow with us as you contribute to the neurodiagnostic profession. We deeply appreciate your interest and guarantee you will benefit both on a personal and professional level. Volunteer opportunities range from serving in a leadership position on the ASET Board of Trustees; as a chair or member of a committee, task force or workgroup; helping with The Neurodiagnostic Journal; helping protect the scope of practice for neurodiagnostic technologists by becoming licensure champions; and helping grow the profession by recruiting and attracting more people to consider neurodiagnostics as their career choice.
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Nominations and elections are held annually to fill vacancies on the ASET Board of Trustees. Active members in good standing who have maintained membership for three out of the five years immediately preceding the election are eligible for nomination. A trustee must be actively engaged in the practice (clinical, research, management or education) of neurodiagnostics or neurophysiology within six months preceding his or her installation. Graduating from the ASET|ABRET Leadership Academy, having prior service as an ASET committee or task force chair, or as a member of the board of a local, state or regional neurodiagnostic society or ASET Chapter, are desirable candidate qualifications for trustee. If you are interested in being considered for nomination, watch for the Call for Trustee Nominations announcements beginning in December of each year.
COMMITTEES AND TASK FORCES
If you have an interest in being appointed to serve on one of our committees or task forces, please watch for ASET’s periodic Call for Volunteers announcements as positions become available.
