Join a Committee, Section, or SIG

AGS volunteer leaders are vital to the American Geriatrics Society’s efforts to insure that older adults have access to high-quality, person-centered care. Your contributions of time and expertise to committee, section, or SIG membership are one of our most important and valued resources.

Committees

AGS Committee members are offered a wide range of opportunities to lead and serve on subcommittee and committee projects which help advance the field of geriatrics and provide better care for our ever growing older adult population. 

All Committees meet face-to-face once a year at the AGS Annual Meeting to plan ahead for the future.  Additionally, there are virtual meetings held each November to discuss mid-year progress.

Sections

Staff Contacts: Dennise McAlpin (dmcalpin@americangeriatrics.org)

Sections are groups that were created to encourage networking among specific disciplines or trainees that are members of the American Geriatrics Society. All sections meet during the AGS Annual Meeting.

 

Special Interest Groups

Staff Contact: Dennise McAlpin

These grass-roots groups meet once a year during the AGS Annual Meeting to network and discuss areas of mutual interest. Depending on member interest, SIGS are active throughout the year, communicating electronically. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are open to all AGS members with an interest in the area of focus. Members of SIGs are encouraged to develop symposia proposals for submission to the Annual Meeting Program Committee, and to present collaborative project ideas to committees. Active participation in a SIG is encouraged for members who are interested in becoming engaged with AGS Committees, subcommittees, and liaison activities.
