Getting Involved

Learn about the benefits of volunteering with SSP and the opportunities available with each of our committees!

SSP offers numerous opportunities to expand your professional development through volunteering to serve on a committee or task force or through election to the Board of Directors.

We are successful because of the active participation of dedicated volunteers. Serving on a committee or task force is a great way to expand your network, gain valuable leadership skills, and increase your personal and organizational visibility within the industry.

The committee chair(s) for the committee(s) you indicated you would be willing to serve will be provided with your contact information at that time. All committee appointments (one-year terms, renewable) are approved by the President. To learn more about SSP’s active committees and task forces, visit our Committees page. Log in to the SSP Member Center to review a detailed description of each committee’s charge in the SSP Organizational Guide.

We have more than 250 members that volunteer their time to support the advancement of scholarly communications by serving on committees, task forces, the Board of Directors, writing for SSP’s blog, The Scholarly Kitchen, or acting as a mentor to our Fellows and mentees. Many of the programs SSP offers were developed and are led by our enthusiastic member volunteers!
