"AMWA has been a very important component of my transtion from the bench-top to the lap-top. Although I was significantly successful as an academic researcher, the academic arena is very different from the corporate world. By joining AMWA I have found a "safe-haven" to practice, develop, and learn the necessary skills to be successful in business."
Beth Pulaski, PhD
As an AMWA volunteer, you can take pride in participating in activities that interest you while expanding your knowledge of medical writing, gaining valuable management and leadership skills, and connecting with others in your profession. We welcome members with all levels of expertise, professionals from all general and specialty areas, and all simply interested in helping support AMWA's ongoing development and growth.
Diversity of perspective is welcome on AMWA committees to ensure that the interests of new and seasoned professionals, different specialty and discipline areas, different regional areas, and new and long-term members are considered.
Volunteer appointments are made by the incoming Department Administrators. Most terms officially begin in December and end during the conclusion of the AMWA Annual Conference of the next year. The term of the Annual Conference Program Committee starts at the Annual Conference preceding the one that they are planning.
Volunteer appointments are made according to your indicated interests, skills, and strengths, as well as the needs of AMWA. Every effort will be made to make use of your time and talents in a way that will be meaningful to you and beneficial to AMWA.
For more information, contact the AMWA membership department, email@example.com, or contact the current department administrator or committee chair. AMWA members may access contact information for other members through the AMWA Member Directory (login required).
Please Note: Volunteer opportunities do come up through the year and will be posted on this page and through AMWA Update. To volunteer for your local AMWA Chapter, please contact your chapter leadership for more information.
