Members-at-Large

Members-at-large provide input on a variety of AGESW business including communications, events, Journal of Gerontological Social Work operations, and the future direction and goals of the organization. There are two board meetings each year – one in the Fall at the GSA meeting and a second by conference call in the Spring. Sub-committees communicate electronically as needed throughout the year. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the future of a dynamic organization.

Student Representatives

Student representatives provide input on a variety of AGESW business including communications, events, Journal of Gerontological Social Work operations, and the future direction and goals of the organization. But most importantly, student representatives help organize online and in-person workshops for doctoral students and coordinate mentoring matches. There are two board meetings each year – one in the Fall at the GSA meeting and a second by conference call in the Spring. Committees communicate electronically as needed throughout the year. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the future of a dynamic organization and a wonderful service position to add to your CV.
