Chapter & SIG Committee Information

The primary function of this committee is to advise and support existing ACBS chapters, affiliates, and SIGs, as well as to maintain & promote the development and organization of new chapters, affiliates, & SIGs.

A major tool for accomplishing this is the chapter & SIG annual report, an important method of annual communication for existing chapters. Beyond the annual report however, we strongly encourage all ACBS members to consider contacting us with needs, requests, concerns or ideas regarding chapter's & SIG's at any time throughout the year. We can help with: general guidance regarding holding an event/training, increasing membership, reviving struggling chapters/SIG’s or starting new ones, information about or facilitation of elections, conflict resolution within or between chapters/SIG's and the promotion & coordination of synthetic efforts among chapters/SIG’s.  For more information, be sure to check out the Chapter, SIG, Affiliate Leader Resources.

We are always looking for new volunteers who want to serve on the Chapter & SIG Committee, we are particularly interested in increasing our members from non-US countries.

The committee has an average of 3-4 meetings per year (meetings are typically 1 hour in duration). Volunteer hours vary depending on projects/tasks with an average of 1-2 hours per month. Please indicate your interest here!

Feel free to contact any of our commitee members!
