Committees and Task Forces
The American Epilepsy Society is led by members who share their insights and expertise in volunteer roles. Most volunteer activity takes place through a committee structure that includes approximately 30 committees with close to 700 AES members who typically serve three-year terms. The committee system is the driving force behind the initiatives, programs, and activities that advance the AES mission. Committee service provides a way for members to engage more deeply with the work of the Society, to connect with other members, and build a career-enhancing record of meaningful volunteer accomplishments.

Appointments are made based on the number of open positions on each committee, the expertise needed, and assuring that committee memberships represent the full breadth and diversity of AES membership. AES benefits from a great number of interested member volunteers, and while the number of volunteers generally exceeds the number of available spots, those members not able to be placed on a committee for the 2021-2023 term will be saved in an active file for new roles and assignments as they occur.
