Wednesday, May 25, 2016 Help Guide the Combined Sections Meeting: Volunteers Needed Want to help shape the direction of APTA's Combined Sections Meeting (CSM)? Now's your chance. APTA has opened a call for volunteers to serve on the CSM Steering Group, which helps to develop high-level recommendations and open communication with stakeholders to enhance CSM. The Steering Group creates and monitors an overall CSM plan, develops processes to support the CSM strategic vision, and maintains oversight of financial policies for the meeting. A detailed job description (pdf) is available on the APTA website. The association is looking for members in good standing with the ability to put the interests of CSM first. Basic knowledge of CSM planning is helpful, and the ideal member should not be on a section executive committee. Applicants will be selected to create the most effective, diverse, and inclusive team possible. Appointment to the Steering Group is for a 3-year term beginning in July, when the group will meet at APTA headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, on July 21-22. Members are funded to attend both the meeting and CSM. Interested? Apply through the APTA Volunteer Interest Pool by updating your profile, then click "Apply for Current Vacancies" to answer questions specific to the CSM Steering Group. Deadline is June 13.
