Get Involved

Volunteer participation in the GSF is welcomed and encouraged

Each year, the GSF needs interested individuals to serve in a variety of short and long-term capacities. Members are invited to touch and influence the collective future of the organization by joining in the planning, direction and decision-making of the Academy.

There are many opportunities for you to become involved:

  • Support Your Division: Get involved with your division by helping to staff their table at the Annual Meeting New Member Orientation Fair.
  • Join a Division or Interest Group: Expand your network and join one of the GSF’s Divisions and Interest Groups.
  • Submit an Article: Submit a manuscript and sign up to review for one of the GSF’s leading publications..
  • Nominate a Colleague for an Award: Nominate a colleague for one of the GSF’s annual recognition or lifetime achievement awards.
  • Grow Your Network: Participate in listserv discussion, follow the GSF on twitter, become a fan on facebook or join the AYRS group on LinkedIn.
  • Nominate Members for Leadership Positions: Help shape the future leadership of the Academy by submitting your nominations for elected GSF/AYRS and divisional positions.
