Become a Member Leader

Benefits of Volunteering

Becoming a member leader will help you expand your professional network, strengthen your leadership and professional skills, and contribute to our mission of uniting, leading, and growing the global endocrine community. As benefit available exclusively to members, it’s also a way to give back and to influence the future of the field.

Anne Cappola, MD, ScM

Our task forces, committees, and working groups are comprised of members and staff committed to advancing endocrine research and practice. By participating in one of these groups, you will work on initiatives that impact our members, practitioners, and patients worldwide.

Opportunities with You in Mind

You can contribute in various ways, each with a different strategic focus, outcomes, and time commitment. This flexibility allows you to identify your preferences and work on opportunities that best suit your interest, availability, and expertise.

In addition to serving on work groups, task forces, and committees, you can also choose to participate in “one-time” activities that help propel our work forward. These activities include reviewing abstracts, participating in surveys and research, and reviewing and providing expert opinions on scientific and clinical resources. We want you to take advantage of opportunities that are both rewarding and fit into your busy schedule.

    Member Leader Spotlight

    Anne Cappola, MD, ScMWithout our member leaders volunteering their expertise, accomplishing our goals would not be possible. The basic and clinical research communities are an important part of our Society. As we implement SP4 and look to create greater value for these members and enter the next year of our committee transition process, we wanted to say "thank you" to Research Affairs Core Committee (RACC) co-chairs Anne Cappola, MD, ScM, and Ruth Keri, PhD for extending their three-year co-chair roles to work with RACC over the last year to ensure that their activities support the priorities of SP4.

    Ruth Keri, PhDThey also have worked with staff to devote a significant amount of time during RACC’s October meeting to identifying the unique role that our Society can play in supporting the research community. During the meeting, RACC discussed the most important things we can do to reinforce that our Society is their professional home, identified areas of emerging science for our Society to champion, and suggested additional tools/resources we can create to fill unmet needs. Thank you to Drs. Cappola and Keri for their dedication to the research community and our Society!
