Volunteering on an SAC standing committee is a great way to give back to your national professional association and work collaboratively with colleagues from across Canada. Joining an SAC committee will also provide you with the opportunity to contribute to the vision and mission of your professional community and association. SAC Certified members can also earn CEEs for voluntary committee work.

Why Volunteer?

  • Gain valuable professional experience
