SIG Volunteer Opportunities

Are you currently a member of an ASRA SIG and are ready to take your participation to the next level?

ASRA special interest groups are always looking for enthusiastic, hard-working, creative volunteers to help them achieve their vision. Each SIG has a chair, vice-chair, and four liaison roles.

A formal call for nominations for these liaison roles is posted each January. In the meantime, you are still free to express your interest by completing our online nomination form. Or, simply contact ASRA to let us know you want to volunteer. 

In addition, the Education in Regional Anesthesia SIG is seeking a Research Liaison. Learn more here.
