Self Nomination for ACT Board Committees - Due November 22

As a membership organization, the strength of ACT lies in the collective effort of its members that volunteer their time and expertise.  ACT’s committees work on behalf of the Board of Directors to provide advice and guidance on the organization’s operations, leadership, programming, and policy; helping the Board build a solid foundation for a strong future.     

Why volunteer to serve on a committee? Committees provide a unique opportunity for members to dive deep into a specific issue or topic area that is key to the current health and future success of the organization.  Volunteering is also great professional development and provides opportunities to collaborate with TDM professionals from across the country and with varying backgrounds. By surrounding yourself with others who do what you do, you’ll not only learn about the industry, expand your professional network and acquire new knowledge but you’ll be helping ACT grow at the same time.

Interested? You can learn more about ACT’s Board Committees below.  If you are interested in serving on a committee, please take a few minutes to submit a statement of interest, noting the committee or committees you would like to be considered for by the Board.
