NATIONAL & STATE COMMITTEES
Outside of your school's Student Association of the ACOFP chapter, there are volunteer opportunities available at both the ACOFP state level and the national level. The ACOFP President and President-elect appoints student members to national committees for a 1-year term (March to March). Selected committees require attendance at up to two face-to-face meetings per term and all committees have regular conference calls throughout the year. Learn about each of our committee before deciding on which volunteer opportunity is best for you.
There are also other opportunities to get more involved with the ACOFP state societies, which are another great source for networking. If you see a committee that sparks your interest, or you are curious about learning more about our state societies, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your information will be reviewed by ACOFP leadership and you will be notified of the appointment in January.
