The work of AUPresses Committees and Task Forces, staffed by volunteers from among our member presses, is essential to the Association. Volunteer service on an AUPresses Committee offers participants the opportunity of professional development through interaction with talented colleagues. Committee members also benefit their own presses by bringing the knowledge, information, and expertise developed in committee service back to their home presses.
Any member of the AUPresses community may volunteer. Individuals who have not been previously active in the Association are especially encouraged to apply.
Committee terms typically begin in July after the conclusion of the Association’s Annual Meeting. Members normally serve three-year terms (except for the Annual Meeting Program Committee, Investment Committee, and task forces). Committee members who have served less than three years should confirm their continued interest in serving with their committee’s chair.

Deadline to volunteer is June 21.
