Committee GuideAIRS Committees:

Share your Ideas and/or Get Involved!

There is always a variety of opportunities to get involved with AIRS and to use your special skills to enhance the field of I&R. In addition to the work of the committees, ad hoc groups are often created around particular topics and members are alerted to these opportunities via the AIRS Networker. And if AIRS has no current committee openings, please contact your Affiliate and offer to help on a state/regional level!

For more information on volunteering, please contact Charlene Hipes at
