Volunteering

Want to get more involved in your professional association? TSAE is looking for volunteers to serve on 2018 Committees and Task Forces.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new members, give back to the association, use your skills and experience, and develop leadership skills. From ongoing year-long commitments to one-time in-person facilitation, we offer a variety of opportunities.

In addition to the opportunities listed below, we may also need volunteers to serve on-site at events or on newly formed task forces or focus groups. Watch the monthly Association Insights newsletter for any new volunteer positions that may arise during the year.

Not in Austin and concerned about attending in person? Don't worry, you can call into many of these meetings. 

Please review the key responsibilities, time commitments, and qualifications and select one or more areas you would like to be considered for.

2018 volunteers will be appointed in April.
