How to Volunteer

The Sleep Research Society invites active 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 research. Members also gain professional enrichment through the diverse activities of a committee.

Members can share their professional expertise as a volunteer committee member. 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 at the conclusion of the annual meeting in June of each year.

Before starting your volunteer application, please note you will be asked to provide the following:

  • CV or brief NIH Bio Sketch
  • Personal Statement (500 characters or less) describing why you are volunteering and what you hope to get out of your experience.
  • Conflict of Interest Form – once you complete the application, you will be routed to the SRS’s Conflict of Interest Form to complete as part of the volunteer application process.
