Our volunteer opportunities are designed to fit your interests and schedules, whatever they may be.

National Level

Contact AMWA's deputy director, Shari Rager (240-238-0940 x107).

Take pride in participating in activities that interest you while expanding your knowledge of medical writing, gaining valuable management and leadership skills, and connecting with others in your profession. Volunteer opportunities are available in a variety of departments within AMWA. We welcome members with all levels of expertise, professionals from all general and specialty areas, and all who are simply interested in helping support AMWA's ongoing growth and development.

While there are many personal and professional reasons to volunteer for AMWA, there are only two requirements. You must be an AMWA member and you must have an interest in volunteering. Please submit your AMWA Volunteer Interest Form as soon as possible to have your talent, experience, and passion for medical writing considered for the AMWA volunteer team.

Additional information on AMWA volunteer requirements and the volunteer interest form submission process is available on the AMWA website at:  For questions related to the volunteer interest form submission process, please email

If you would like to lead or co-lead a credit workshop, ask Shari to put you in touch with AMWA's Education Committee administrator.  Tell the administrator what you want to be (leader or co-leader) and what subject you want to teach, and send her/him your CV.  The administrator will then take your request to the Education Committee for approval.  If you propose to start a new credit workshop, you may be asked to first teach your subject a few times as a noncredit workshop or breakfast roundtable.  Then, if your students like your presentation, the committee will approve your new credit workshop.

Chapter Level

If you would like to join one of the committees that are listed on the Officers page, contact either the chair of that committee or Esther Brooks-Asplund.
