Become an AALHE Volunteer!

The AALHE volunteer community is an active group of assessment professionals who help improve and sustain AALHE. As a volunteer, you can make valuable professional connections, share your skills, and help AALHE continually improve by serving on an AALHE committee.

Our committees are currently recruiting for the July 2023 - June 2024 year. New and existing members are encouraged to get involved. To be considered, please submit the volunteer form linked below. We strongly recommend that you consider a three-year commitment and engagement expectations when signing up to volunteer for a committee.

Note: Only members who have paid their annual membership dues are eligible to volunteer. If you’re not yet a member you can become a member when you complete the volunteer form. 

For a comprehensive guide to being an AALHE volunteer, please review the AALHE Volunteer Handbook.
