ASBMB committees

The ASBMB encourages its members to get involved through service on society committees. Committee members serve three-year terms, which are renewable once, typically from July 1 to June 30. The society strives for equity and inclusion, as well as institutional, geographic and career stage diversity on all of its committees.

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.

Interested in applying?

Those interested in serving on a committee should submit a statement of interest that includes relevant areas of expertise. Questions about committee membership? Email membership@asbmb.org.

Applications will close on Friday, Aug. 13.
