The Member Engagement Committee serves the membership by connecting new members, and those interested in becoming more involved, with Committee Chairs who are seeking assistance. We seek to match the talents of our membership with the needs of leadership, to help move the organization and its members forward together. ISSTD is an organization hugely dependent on the involvement and assistance of its membership. Without our volunteers – which include our entire Board, our Presidents, all our Committee Chairs and all our Committee Members – ISSTD would not function the way it does now.
With the help of members who volunteer their time, we are able to do so much more than would be possible with our very small team of paid staff (as wonderful as they are). Our members assist in many ways from serving on Committees, through to volunteering at a conference, helping with some marketing ideas, or editing a draft document. It’s a great opportunity to give back, develop networks in our field and learn new skills. However, the Membership Engagement Committee is in need of members and is also seeking a Committee Chair.
If you are interested in networking throughout ISSTD and have an interest in volunteer support this could be the Committee for you. If interested contact myself (Lisa Danylchuk): email@example.com. If you are interested in becoming more involved with the other areas of ISSTD, I encourage you to explore some of the committee needs here. If you see something that interests you, or you’re keen on getting more involved, you can fill out a member engagement form here. Your passion and skills can make a big impact! Thanks to all of you who are contributing your time and energy; you help make this international organization thrive.
