ASBMB committees

The ASBMB provides multiple opportunities for members to get involved through service on our committees. Committee members are appointed by the ASBMB Council at the recommendation of the individual committee. Members are appointed to a three-year term, which is renewable one time and typically runs from July 1 to June 30. The ASBMB encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups, as well as early-career scientists, in the governance of the society to ensure diversity, equity and inclusion. Additionally, the committee strives for institutional, geographic and career stage diversity.

Member criteria

Committee membership is open to the following ASBMB membership categories: regular, industry, early career, graduate student, affiliate and emeritus. Committee members are expected to participate and be engaged in committee activities and have a genuine interest in the committee’s mission.

Time commitment

Members participate in conference calls throughout the year and one to two in-person meetings; one meeting is usually held during the ASBMB annual meeting. Subcommittees and task forces conduct business through emails and conference calls as needed.

The application period has ended.
