The Sleep Research Society invites members to participate in a standing committee. Volunteer committee members provide an invaluable service to the organization and to members by contributing to initiatives and projects that are critical to the field of sleep and circadian research. Members also gain professional enrichment through the diverse activities of a committee.
Volunteering on a Committee
Members can share their professional expertise and volunteer for an SRS standing committee. Volunteers must be able to participate in committee conference calls as frequently as once per month. While we accept volunteer submissions all year long, committee members are placed on the respective committee in April of each year for the upcoming three-year term, which begins in June each year.
To volunteer, please complete the following online form and submit your CV summary, no longer than two pages, or an NIH Biosketch to [email protected] or by mail to 2510 North Frontage Road, Darien, IL 60561.
The Communications Committee shall determine optimal communication strategies and tools, facilitate media outreach, and give members a greater sense of ownership in the Society. The Committee will implement novel strategies to engage the non-member sleep research community.
