Volunteer Opportunities

Every year, many talented, hard-working ASHT members help advance the hand therapy profession and patient care through volunteer service. Volunteers serve as the backbone of ASHT’s work. We know you’re busy, and we encourage you to find time to get involved with ASHT. Participating in the society often returns unexpected dividends – improved leadership skills, connections with hand therapists all over the country, opportunities to shape ASHT’s direction and a better understanding of the issues facing hand therapists in an increasingly complex healthcare environment.

No matter what your practice area or interests are, there are many opportunities to get involved with ASHT. Members are encouraged to apply for leadership positions. Detailed descriptions of volunteer position duties and qualifications can be found below.
