Applicants must select an interest category. Each category is distinctly defined as presented below. ASB strives to achieve balance across the interest categories for representation on each Consensus Body. A Consensus Body is comprised of 7 to 25 individuals striving for no interest category having greater than 33% representation. Submitting an application does not guarantee membership. ASB considers the following when selecting new members to a consensus body:
a) Filling open positions within the Consensus Body;
b) Potential for achieving or maintaining balance of interest categories within the Consensus Body;
c) Extent of interest expressed by the applicant and the applicant’s willingness to participate.
An applicant must submit separate applications for each Consensus Body and/or Interest category.
Prior to filling out this application, please review the ASB Interest Categories to determine what kind of membership (individual or organization) you are applying for. https://www.aafs.org/sites/default/files/media/documents/Interest%20Categories%202023.pdf
