Selection Process: 

The Ethics Committee is looking for 3 new members for the 2024-2025 term which means not all applicants will be accepted for this committee.

Additional Information: 

  • New volunteers are required to attend the volunteer group’s orientation in order to serve. 

  • Council members (or their organizations) pay their own travel expenses to attend meetings.  

Diversity of Voice- With support of ASAE staff, the selection committee utilizes the ASAE Board Diversity Policy and Volunteer Model to ensure the group is comprised of a variety of voices from the membership.  To support this effort, all ASAE members can log into their main ASAE account and update their information in their ASAE Profile to ensure it is complete and up to date. 


  • New volunteers are required to attend the volunteer group’s kickoff meeting in order to serve. 

  • ASAE does not reimburse Committee, or Council members for travel. 

  • Members can only serve 1 (one) volunteer group (council or committee) at a time.
