Call for committee and advisory group volunteers

May 23, 2008

On behalf of the American Society of Nephrology (ASN), thank you for your support of the association and its activities.

The ASN Council invites you to become more involved in the association by applying to serve on a committee or an advisory group.  The following ASN committees and advisory groups are seeking members to begin service during Renal Week 2008:

  • Basic Science Committee
  • Clinical Science Committee
  • Grants Review Committee
  • Education Committee
  • Postgraduate Education Committee
  • Publications Committee

Advisory Groups
  • Acute Kidney Injury Advisory Group
  • Chronic Kidney Disease Advisory Group
  • Dialysis Advisory Group
  • Glomerular Diseases Advisory Group
  • Hypertension Advisory Group
  • Practicing Nephrologists Advisory Group
  • Transplant Advisory Group

To view the charges of each committee and advisory group, please click on that panel’s name in this email or visit the "committees" page on ASN’s website, which is located at:

The term for serving on a committee or advisory group is three years (November 2008 to October 2011 for the upcoming cycle).  If you are interested in applying to serve on one of ASN’s panels, please complete the ASN Call for Volunteers Form.  When completing the form, please submit your first choice for the committee or advisory group on which you would like to serve.  Current committee members who wish to continue serving do not need to indicate their interest by re-applying

The deadline to apply for committee or advisory group membership is Friday, June 13, 2008, at 4:00 p.m. EDT.

Again, thanks.  For further information about this email, the committees or advisory groups, or ASN, please contact ASN Operations Coordinator Laura McCann at (202) 659-0599 or
