Committees

The Vital Role of Society Volunteers – Getting Involved

The SSO has over 463 members serving on 29 active Committees, Subcommittees, Work Groups and Task Forces for the 2022 – 2023 governance year. The various groups of SSO volunteer leaders are critical to the accomplishment of the SSO Mission. Whether Standing or Appointed, these Committees, Subcommittees, Work Groups, and Task Forces are the functional entities that guide and often execute the work of the Society. They also provide an opportunity for member engagement and the development of future Society leaders. Click here for more information on the Application for Engagement (formerly Call for Volunteers).
