Apply to Serve on AAN Committee or Subcommittee

The AAN offers many opportunities to get involved, whether it’s growing your leadership skills through one of the many leadership programs or participating in a committee or work group. Getting involved will provide you the resources to help advance your career and connect with neurology professionals with similar interests and career stages.

Interested in becoming more involved with the AAN? Only members who complete an application will be considered for committee vacancies for the 2019-2021 presidential term.

There are a limited number of available committee and subcommittee appointments that can be made each year. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to meet all of the requests to serve during the appointment process. Your name and interest list will remain in the committee interest listing for a total of two years from the date your interest form is completed. Thank you for your interest and willingness to volunteer for the AAN!

Throughout the year, there are many other opportunities to serve on various workgroups, task forces, and to apply to AAN leadership programs. Check out a few of the other leadership opportunities with the AAN!
