Get Involved

NCME committees involve various NCME programs and awards. Program committees coordinate action on a variety of projects and programs such as the annual meeting program and outreach and partnership. Award committees review nominations and select recipients. Committees are chaired by a single member and often co-chaired by another. Committee members typically serve a three-year term. 

All NCME members are encouraged to volunteer for a committee. Volunteering to serve on a committee indicates that a member is interested in serving on a committee but it does not guarantee a spot on a committee. NCME Members may volunteer for multiple committees each year. However, a member may serve on only one committee at a time.
