Call for Applications and Nominations to Serve on ASHG Committees

For terms beginning January 1, 2025

Applications for committee service in 2025 closed on March 18, 2024. Nominees will be notified of their application’s status in late summer. 

Candidate Review Process

After the submission deadline, the ASHG Nominating Committee reviews all the nominations with extensive input from committee chairs to finalize committee appointments, which are ultimately approved by the ASHG Executive Committee. Nominees will be notified of their application's status in late summer.

ASHG is committed to ensuring that the composition of its committees reflects the diversity of our membership and believes that a diverse leadership structure provides the variety of perspectives and ideas needed to develop high-quality programs. 

ASHG strongly encourages applications (self-nominations) in addition to the nomination of colleagues.
