SAA Committee Volunteers

SAA Committee Volunteers

The SAA Board of Directors has been hard at work developing activities and events to build the SAA. Below is a list of current national SAA Committees for the 2017-2018 year with links to their charges:

We are currently accepting submissions for SAA Volunteers for the 2017-2018 committee year. If interested, please log-on to the Audiology Community and opt-in to the Volunteer Pool under the Volunteer tab on the main page. You will then need to select a volunteer opportunity under the Student Academy of Audiology in order to be considered for a volunteer position. E-mail Rachael Sifuentes, Associate Director of SAA and Volunteer Engagement, with questions or issues.

SAA volunteers must be members of the national SAA and must remain active SAA members throughout their committee service (or Academy members if they graduate and transition to Fellow membership status before the end of the committee year).
