We are currently accepting committee sign-up and renewal for the 2023-2024 year.

Committee members who are currently active on a committee during the “renewal” time will continue their work through July 31st. During this sign-up and renewal process, new sign-ups for the current term are on hold to prevent confusion among committee co-chairs, committee members, and TPS staff.  Any member who signs up for a new committee after May 15th will not be active on that committee until August 1st. 
New Committee on Environmental Health
In response to member interest in environmental health and its impact on children and youth, this new committee has been formed to address needs and issues within this important area.

TPS members: Active, Life/Emeritus, Associate, Resident/Fellow and Medical students are eligible for committee sign-up. If you need to verify membership contact the TPS Director of Member Services. TPS list of committees are below.

Meetings and Terms
TPS members may sign-up for committees throughout the year. Committee terms are from August 1 – July 31. So, even if you join a TPS committee in May, you must complete the form in June to continue serving for the next term. Current committee members who do NOT complete the form will be DROPPED from the Committee.

Committees meet virtually throughout the year with two in person meetings a year. Once in conjunction with the TPS Annual Meeting, usually in September/October and the other at TPS Annual Leadership Planning Summit (ALPS), in April.

Committee Duties
Committee members’ responsibilities include expanding the committee initiatives, providing guidance on pediatric issues, and serving as experts for QI projects, task forces, and grant funded opportunities. Much of the committee work and consultation is conducted via email, and we provide virtual participation when possible.  

Expressing Interest in a Co-Chair Position
If you are interested in becoming or remaining a committee chair you may indicate your willingness on the committee form under that group. To be considered, you must have served on the committee for at least one year and be an active member (associates, fellows, residents, and medical students may not serve.) The final co-chair appointments are approved by the President-Elect in late July.
